Unveiling the Power of DRN’s LPR Data: Unmasking Garaging, Pre-existing Damage, and Unauthorized Commercial Vehicle Use Fraud

Table of Contents


Insurance fraud has become a colossal challenge plaguing the insurance industry. According to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, roughly $45 billion dollars in losses happen annually in the property and casualty sector. Combatting insurance scams demands cutting-edge technologies and advanced data analysis techniques. Enter License Plate Recognition (LPR) data—a game-changer in the battle against insurance fraud. We will dive into the extraordinary capabilities of Digital Recognition Network’s (DRN) LPR data, empowering insurers to easily detect and prevent three prevalent types of insurance fraud: Garaging Fraud, Pre-existing Damage Fraud and Unauthorized Commercial Vehicle Use Fraud.

Garaging Fraud

Unmasking the truth behind garaging fraud has never been easier with DRN’s Garage Aware. Insurers can now verify the primary vehicle location by leveraging the power of LPR technology. By cross-referencing reported and detected vehicle locations, insurers can pinpoint any material misrepresentation made by policyholders to obtain lower premiums. Our LPR cameras capture and record license plates, providing irrefutable evidence to expose those who falsely claim lower-risk areas. Uncover potential garaging fraud before an auto insurance policy is even signed by submitting customer-supplied underwriting information to us for validation. With this newfound ability, insurers can proactively detect garaging fraud, safeguarding their integrity and ensuring fair premiums for all.


Pre-existing Damage Fraud

Detecting pre-existing damage fraud is now a force to be reckoned with, thanks to DRN’s Picture Proof. By delving into historical LPR data, insurers gain unprecedented insights into a vehicle’s past. The analysis reveals whether the same vehicle has had prior damage or incidents. By comparing this data with a policyholder’s claims history, insurers can identify inconsistencies or potential instances of pre-existing damage fraud. Our data acts as an impeccable detective, unraveling the truth behind fraudulent claims and protecting insurers from unwarranted losses.

Unauthorized Commercial Vehicle Use Fraud

Unleash the power of DRN’s LPR data to expose the hidden world of unauthorized commercial vehicle use fraud. No need to wait for a claim: use Picture Proof as part of the underwriting and renewal process for insurance fraud detection and prove commercial use before a claim is ever filed. Policyholders attempting to deceive insurers by misrepresenting their vehicle’s usage for lower premiums will find their deception unraveled. DRN’s LPR data enables insurers to locate vehicle movement patterns and seamlessly cross-reference them with policy details. Inconsistencies are laid bare, and potential cases of unauthorized commercial vehicle use are brought to light. Insurers can now take swift and decisive actions, protecting themselves and ensuring fair premiums for honest policyholders.
