The start point for the best source of fleet information

Telematics used by UK businesses to disprove liability, says RAC

Date: 19 October 2015   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

More than a third of businesses in the UK have used telematics data to contest speeding fines and false insurance claims.

According to research by the RAC, 18% of businesses have used data to show that a driver wasn't at fault for an insurance claim, while a further 17% have used the evidence to successfully appeal against a speeding ticket.

According to the RAC's business arm, more than a third (38%) of all UK companies now employ telematics systems in their fleets.

"These findings point to clear benefits for fleet managers using telematics technology," said RAC Telematics managing director Nick Walker. "Speeding fines and insurance claims can be difficult to contest and often result in fines being incorrectly imposed as well as leading to damaging increases in your insurance premiums."

"Telematics provides an immediate solution by generating data that can prove beyond doubt what actually happened during the incident," he added.
