Railroad Dash Cam Footage Can Show You What Really Happened
Train accidents almost always result in serious property damage, injuries and/or fatalities. With a railroad dash cam system in place, railroad fleet managers will have a transparent look at what actually happened before, during and after an accident. In the U.S. alone, the number of rail fatalities in 2019 increased to a total of 937, not including deaths due to unauthorized people on the tracks. While that may not seem like a lot in comparison to highway fatalities — 38,800 during the same year — the railroad industry has prioritized reducing fatalities and all accidents on the tracks.
