Monitor your driving and protect yourself from insurance fraud
It’s staggering to think that some people will deliberately cause car accidents to make money – but sadly, it happens. They wreck your car, damage your health, and destroy your confidence, just to rip off insurance companies. Aviva reported a 51% increase in “crash-for-cash” car insurance scams last year. The Association of British Insurers highlighted £811m of fraudulent car insurance claims. It’s estimated these scammers add about £50 to the annual cost of our car insurance.
Owning a driving camera can help protect your car, your no claims bonus, and most importantly – you.
Attached to your windscreen just like a sat nav, driving cameras record a view of the road ahead whenever your engine is running. In the event of an accident of any kind, you will be able to prove how you were driving and where you were on the road – and ultimately, who is at fault. Good ones aren’t cheap, but if you are unlucky enough to be the victim of a false insurance claim they could save you a small fortune.
Young Car Driver are giving away a Garmin Dash Cam 10 HD driving camera, worth £169. Just attach it to your windscreen, plug it into your cigarette lighter socket, and it will record crystal clear HD video of your view of the road. To be in with a chance of winning, enter your details in the prize draw below. You can increase your number of entries by liking, following and sharing the Young Car Driver site. Good luck!
