Motor insurance companies cannot depend on car black boxes says RAC

RAC the motor insurer says that car insurance companies should not be too dependant on car black boxes, a box that collects data by event data recorder or EDR boxes, because the motorists actions will not be recorded by the box.

The EDR box will store and record the speed and actions of the vehicle like breaking, indicating and the changes in acceleration. It will also record the last 30 seconds before an accident and the next 15 seconds after.

The cost of introducing these boxes will be expensive but maybe the government should help with the cost of the bill as this could help reduce the number of accidents on the road.
