How Dash Cameras Cut Costs for Transit Agencies

Transit agencies face many unpredictable expenses, but one area where they can save significantly is through the use of dash cameras. New York City Comptroller Brad Lander’s annual claims report revealed a 14% increase in claims against the city for reckless driving by employees in fiscal year 2023. These claims cost taxpayers a staggering $180 million in payouts for vehicle crashes involving city workers.
