NTSB Says Onboard Video Helps Spot Accident Causes

Posted on May 1, 2015

A National Traffic Safety Board report found that onboard video systems – both continuous and event-based – can “provide valuable information for evaluating the circumstances leading to a crash,” if the cameras are positioned properly and if the systems are adequate for recording in low light.

NTSB looked at two specific crashes – one in 2012 involving a school bus in Port Lucie, Fla., and the 2011 crash of a motor coach near Kearney, Neb.

Although the report focused on buses, the board's recommendations also encompassed the trucking industry, and can be applied to the limo industry.
