Every mile on the road exposes fleets, vehicles and drivers to the risk of having a collision. Preventing collisions caused by drivers is challenging because driver-related risk factors must be measured on the roadway (before a collision occurs) and those factors must be addressed in a timely manner.
But, how do you know what risks your drivers may be taking on the road – when you’re not on the road with them? It’s even more difficult when you are managing a fleet with hundreds of drivers across the country 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With an increase in large truck and bus fatality crashes year over year, it’s more important than ever for fleets to know what’s going on in the cab. Video is proving to be the only way to truly know.
As video-based safety becomes ubiquitous throughout the industry, SmartDrive commissioned a survey with Fleet Owner magazine. Surveying the industry through a non-biased publication provides unique insights into the reasons why fleets are acquiring video-based safety and the results of their decisions.
