Vehicles equipped with multi-camera dash cam systems offer added protection to drivers (as well as their CDLs) by providing up to a full 360-degree view, resulting in fewer blind-spot collisions by allowing the driver to see potential hazards behind and beside them.
Mounted on the outside of the vehicle, exterior cameras help provide a full 360-degree view, not only of the vehicle but also of the road, which allows the driver to see in blind spots, helping the driver safely change lanes or make turns. This is especially useful for drivers of semis or tractor-trailers, as the cameras can see what drivers may not. Exterior cameras can also help determine responsibility in the event of an accident by showing the other vehicles (and license plates) or objects that the driver was unable to see.
Interior cameras monitor not only drivers, but also help protect freight. Video from an interior camera can help highlight poor driving habits that can then be addressed by management, and can also prevent issues with theft with constant video monitoring.
