Overview of the RoadHawk RH-2

Internal recordings made by the RoadHawk are aided using a built in infra red light. This is perfect for taxi drivers or other public service drivers who require security even in the dark. Should the driver wish to record an event on demand - a remote control is provided which when activated will store three minutes of data before and three minutes after activation.
Constant checking for impact is performed by the RoadHawk via incredibly sensitive g-force sensors which are built into the RH-2.
