RAC's black boxes prevent breakdowns or speeds up recovery

May 10, 2018 / Ryan Daws

The RAC will use information from connected ‘black boxes’ to prevent breakdowns or speed up the recovery time of stranded vehicles. Having a vehicle fitted with a black box has become popular in recent years to help reduce insurance premiums. Data collected from these boxes provide insights on whether an individual is a safe or reckless driver. The RAC is extending the benefits of having a black box fitted to more quickly diagnose the reason for a vehicle breakdown. Anyone who’s found themselves stuck on the side of the road with a broken down car will know any minutes saved are welcome.
