How does benefit you most? 
The answers will depend on whether you seek benefits for yourself, your family or your company fleet. They may also depend on how concerned you are about the driving standards on our roads, or how some individuals needlessly put our lives at risk each day. 
The benefits of using are numerous. Whether you are an individual, a small business or fleet manager, here are just a few; 
The Benefits to you Personally 
Earn money from your footage. If you capture a third party incident on your dash cam, we can 'sell' your footage to the insurance companies to prove liability. Recently another happy member received £200 - Mrs Cohead said: "Having invested in a dash cam to protect my own motoring interests I am delighted that PoliceWitness secured me such a large sum of money when my camera caught a third party incident, thank you PoliceWitness".

Easy Communication with the Police 
WE LIAISE WITH THE POLICE FOR YOU liaises with every police force in the country, meaning no matter where the incident happened, we have it covered. Our reporting process was designed in collaboration with the Met, meaning the police receive reports in a format they know and can act upon. One system and one point of contact, as opposed to thousands of unique reports. 
Through our in-depth knowledge of the police service, and the Crown Prosecution Service, we help to secure the very best possible outcome of each incident you report through Our track record of success is evident with fines and points issued, through to driver disqualification and driving re-training. In October 2015 a driver was even imprisoned as a result of our efforts to hold dangerous drivers to account. (A 24 year male was sentenced to 8 months in prison and banned from driving for 28 months after admitting dangerous driving)

An in-car dash-cam, sometimes referred to as a ‘Black Box’ continuously proves your driving style, showing speed, acceleration, cornering and braking forces.  
In the event of an accident here is how to get cash back with our help, follow our advice here: 
On average we secure around £200-300 in exchange for the rights to YOUR video footage. We would also try and negotiate a reduction of next year’s premium too.  
In the event of a collision, your in-car camera or dashcam will prove you were in the right, meaning your claim is agreed and finalised within a matter of days, not months. 
Safer Roads 
Peace of mind, empowerment and security, never be a victim of road rage again, cameras seem to simmer the most angry of individual! 
ERADICATE CRASH FOR CASH AND FLASH FOR CASH aims to empower 10’s of thousands, if not 100’s of thousands of concerned drivers so that we can eradicate ‘crash for cash’ scams from our streets, meaning the estimated £400 million cost to insurers is not passed onto the general public. If you record your journeys with a discreet and simple to install dash cam and allow to fight your corner, never again will you be a powerless victim of insurance bureaucracy, road rage, or genuine insurance fraud such as Crash for Cash and Flash for Cash. 
Your Children's Safety 
As a parent, or perhaps a bus driver, do you fear for the safety of children on or near our roads? Do you despair at the amount of drivers who do not comply with the 20mph limit around schools, or simply ignore crossing patrols? 
Parking around schools has always been a problem, even though almost all of those responsible are parents themselves. Vehicles are left in dangerous and obstructive places, restricting the view of other motorists and making it difficult for children and parents to cross the road safely. 
What can be done? 
Trying to get anything effective done about individuals, or the issue as a whole, is frustrating and frequently pointless. This is partly because the power to act against offenders rests almost exclusively with the police service and this is just one of many high priority demands upon their time. 
But you can help by bringing evidence-based pressure to bear upon Local Authorities who have the power to regulate the highways. has been established with the primary purpose of supporting and enabling members of the public who want to make a difference in situations, like those described above
