Cost Effective Mobile Dvr System To Cut Insurance For Young Drivers
Blackburn-based vehicle safety specialist, Vision Techniques, is giving young motorists the opportunity to slash hundreds of pounds off their insurance costs.
Under 25-year-olds willing to fit their cars with the companys cost-effective Pointer In-Car Accident Recording Mobile CCTV System can expect to save hundreds of pounds on their premiums.
In-car mobile DVR helps to cut fraud and make it easier to prove what happened in a car crash, according to the insurance industry.
The innovative system provides a video record of any accidents or incidents that may have taken place, preventing false and fraudulent claims.
It also acts as a black box, measuring such things as speed, braking and journey times.
Transport Secretary Justine Greening recently called for car insurance bills to be cut in a bid to help ease Britains youth unemployment crisis.
She said that more young motorists should have black boxes fitted in their cars because drivers who can prove they drive safely can cut the cost of their car insurance.
Ms Greening said: For many young people, getting a car is one of the ways they can make sure they can access jobs and employment.
More than a million 16 to 24-year-olds are out of work and premiums for young drivers cost thousands of pounds.
Pippa Hinchcliffe, of Vision Techniques, said: The Pointer System is a fantastic tool for monitoring a drivers performance, recording accidents and reducing insurance premiums.
According to the AA, average car insurance premiums for men aged 17 to 22 cost more than 3,500, and young women drivers pay an average of 2,300.
Local driver, Lewis, 22, said: Its ridiculous how much young drivers have to pay in car insurance.
