Take advantage of information—such as speeding, hard braking, and service warnings—to make your fleet safer.
Safety is one of the most important benefits that fleets can realize by using telematics. The most obvious benefit is cost savings from avoiding accidents in the first place. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that every 10 seconds an injury occurs and every 5 seconds a crash occurs. With that frequency, reducing accidents and resulting injuries is critical to fleets and their ownership. Moreover, 80% of accidents are the fault of personal automobile drivers, yet the commercial driver and company often bear the fault and cost of the accident.
