“It’s an instrumental database that we use hundreds of times a day.
Our experience has been that when the CAR FOX says there’s a problem, he’s 100% correct: there’s a problem. Now, it may not be criminal in nature. It may not be something fraudulent. But if there’s a problem, we’ve found it to be 100% correct.”
Clear the road quicker and prevent secondary collisions
Roadside crashes place officers and citizens at risk. With Driver Exchange (link to DeX), traffic and patrol officers clear the road in up to 30 minutes less at each crash site. Officers simply scan, send and share driver information right from the scene of the accident using the CARFAX for Police mobile app. Citizens have immediate access to information they need to start an insurance claim, and using the tool gets officers and citizens off the road in half the time while saving up to 30 minutes of office time for each report. Focus on what matters most: keeping your officers and your community safe. More from the Front Lines.
