Haigh Transport has fitted MI Witness forward-facing cameras to its trucks, following successful trials with a system supplied by Aide Automotive.

The Ellerton, near York, based haulier says that road incidents and cash-for-crash have become increasing concerns so installing incident cameras, to protect against criminals and improve insurance claim evidence, made perfect sense. 

”I think on-board camera systems will be a must for haulage operators in the coming years,” comments Tony Haigh, of Haigh Transport. 

”We had an incident in Nottingham, which I believe was a cash-for-crash, but, without any evidence, it is hard to prove,” he continues. 

”I first looked at low-cost flip-down cameras about a year ago, and following testing concluded the camera to be of low quality. Aide Automotive presented a range of cameras suitable for our needs so we progressed with a trial of the MI Witness camera.” 

Haigh says that once the footage was reviewed he had no hesitation in placing an order to cover the fleet. 

”Camera technology is an ideal way for me, as the director of our company, to see what exactly happened with a road incident. I would recommend the MI Witness camera to any vehicle operator.”
