(Washington Business Journal) — The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority will install monitoring video cameras in all of its buses as a way to reduce accidents, improve safety and save on fuel.
Metro decided to install the system of driver and road video surveillance after a nine-month test. The system, known as DriveCam, is made by San Diego-based DriveCam Inc.
The cameras take continuous video of a vehicle’s driver and the road ahead of that vehicle. Fleet managers can then analyze the video to spot risky and inefficient driving habits.
