It was a dark winter morning, 5:30 am. Ross from the Town of Whitby was headed south to his plow route over a 401 overpass. The bridge was a little narrow for his big plow truck, so his wing blade was in the raised position to avoid the sidewalk as he drove.

“Not only can the technology help prevent and reduce collision rates, but it also encourages better driving practices by delivering real-time feedback to drivers. Even if you’re a good driver, driving conditions can be unpredictable, and by having a safety net system that actively delivers warnings — such as forward collision and tailgate monitoring — good drivers are able to react even better to unpredictable situations,” Michael Backman, VP and general manager of U.S. Operations for Mobileye.

They’re out there…bad drivers…lurking in your blind spot, driving distracted, crossing multiple lanes, cutting you off, slamming on their brakes, yacking on their phones and potentially causing a wave of near misses or accidents in their path. Protect yourself from the liability issues these drivers present with the DiCAN in-vehicle dash camera.
