Thank you for your interest in PoliceWitness.com
If you are reading this, you no doubt already recognise the importance and immense value a dash cam has in protecting your interests, reducing your insurance, and safeguarding your family. We seek to empower and protect our members on the road using dash cam technology, at home as part of our Community Watch programme and personally using our 999 emergency police app.
In the event of an accident, or if someone needlessly puts you in harm’s way, how would you prove what happened? With no witnesses, the simple answer is, you couldn’t – it will be your word against theirs. The result, even with your no claims protected, is you will be asked to pay the excess on your policy (usually hundreds of pounds). But with a dash cam, the evidence is there for when you need it most. Did you know over 4 million people in the UK now use a dash cam to protect themselves?
The 3 MOTORISTS BELOW didn't think they needed a dash cam but without the video evidence the 3 incidents below could have had very different outcomes:
The HGV in front rolled backward 8ft and hit the car belonging to a member of PoliceWitness, whilst he sat in stand still traffic. Mr H said "it was a complete shock to see a vehicle traveling towards you on the motorway and I had no way to get out of the vehicle's path."
The footage captured on the dash cam clearly shows that the member of PoliceWitness was not at fault and that the HGV was solely liable for the incident. Without this evidence, the insurance companies would have undoubtedly concluded that both drivers should share the liability 50/50 and our member would have had to make a claim on his insurance and potentially lost his no claims discount.
The offending driver did not stop but fortunately the whole incident was captured on dash cam and our member was able to identify the offending vehicle to both the police and her insurance company.
The car did not stop, instead it made off at speed down the road, where it performs another deadly manoeuvre at a busy junction.
At court in North Wales the driver was not only imprisoned for 9 months, he was also fined, banned from driving for 2 years and will be required to sit and extended driving test before he is allowed back on the road.
Why you should own a dash cam:
• Members of policewitness.com can actually make money from the footage their dash cams capture. In the event of witnessing a third party accident, our members are encouraged to exchange details with both parties who then leave the rest to us to negotiate fees of up to hundreds of pounds, in exchange for use of the video footage. Mrs Cohead, from the Midlands caught on her dash cam a 2 car collision near a supermarket and received £200 for just a few seconds of footage. Mrs Cohead, like all our members received 100% of the payment PoliceWitness negotiated. This one incident alone paid for her dash cam! How’s that for service?
