The A129 Duo Plus IR is the latest dashcam we’ve released, perfect for taxi and Uber drivers.
Each year, 1/3 of taxi drivers make an insurance claim. Having a dashcam fitted can provide reduced insurance premiums. This is because dash cams provide irrefutable evidence of liability in the case of an incident.

Dash cams work to give the driver evidence in the event of a crash to help avoid crash schemes and other purposeful accidents that could leave the driver liable.
Additionally, dash cams work to keep everyone safe. The dual cameras also show the driver taking any calls or phone use, which could put passengers in danger. Furthermore, the camera works to keep passengers safe in the event of a disagreement or other disputable incident.
Businesses can legally use dash cams in the UK, but they must adhere to strict privacy rules. As with CCTV, or any other surveillance system, images and audio recordings of an individual captured by dash cam constitute personal data. Number plates of privately-owned vehicles are also considered personal data.
In accordance with GDPR, businesses must have a ‘clearly defined and specific purpose’ for the use of dash cams. Taxi firms cannot simply roll out dash cams unless they can demonstrate that camera usage is both necessary and proportionate to the problem it addresses.
