A steady increase in false insurance claims is necessitating new ways for transport companies to protect themselves. A highly effective measure now widely used in the industry, is the installation of CCTV security within vehicles.
Although serious crime is relatively low on public transport, falling 5% between 2017 and 2018, there has been an increase in complaints regarding verbal abuse, low level violence (pushing and shoving etc.) and threatening behaviour at peak-commuter times. Such behaviour must be documented so companies can take appropriate action and protect passengers.
What does the transport industry expect/need from CCTV security?
- Robust systems –Given widespread, sub-standard road surface quality across the UK and the amount of time many vehicles spend on the road, transport companies need equipment that can withstand these challenges.
- Communication – The is a need to automatically alert drivers using techniques such as VCA.
