Azuga recently announced key safety findings from its proprietary Accident Risk Model.
The company created this model to assess levels of threats for drivers based on underlying behavior and external factors. This offering is the latest analysis-based consultative solution from the rapidly growing company that provides a suite of hardware and software solutions to help fleets monitor and improve driver behavior, reduce risk and ultimately lower costs related to driving incidents. The more recent findings from the model include:
- Accident risk surges by 9.1 percent for every mile driven during high risk hours (between midnight – 3 a.m.)
- Accident risk increases by 8.3 percent with fatigued driving (drive time of more than 6 hours)
- One hard braking incident per every 100 miles driven increases the risk of a preventable accident by 16.9 percent.
