This design, the company says, provides complete containment of the system, away from the windshield and outside of the path of air bag deployment.
In that spirit, CruiseCam International has now created a mount for the mass market that weighs 1.5 pounds, works with all camcorders, can be installed in minutes and does not require the use of tools. The InCar CruiseCam camera mount will be available in Ritz Camera stores starting in October.
Besides the obvious reasons for having a camera system inside your car, such as providing security from auto theft and related crimes, the company says this device can be an excellent training tool for first-time drivers.
"The CruiseCam camera mount reduces the liability for schools using video camcorders during over the road driver training and improves the students' understanding of what they did wrong by watching their video," said Scott Watkins, president and chief executive officer of CruiseCam International. "This is consistent with our corporate mission of being committed to improving vehicle safety."
Watkins notes that having a camera in a car can be beneficial because it holds drivers accountable, and thus improves driver performance. In the event of an accident, it can help establish proof of fault, as well as potentially minimize insurance costs and claims.
