DriverCheck offers vehicle collision avoidance systems that reduce collisions caused by unsafe driving behaviors.
ATLANTA, GA. - A leading fleet management company, DriverCheck, offers businesses the ability to monitor their drivers to eliminate risky driving behaviors, increasing profits and road safety.
The reason for the incredible success of DriverCheck's collision countermeasures systems is that the majority of a fleet's drivers are cautious and safe drivers. Studies have shown that a mere 10 to 20 percent of fleet employees are the cause of accidents. This correlates to the fact that 80 percent of drivers in a fleet never receive a complaint. Therefore, companies that are able to identify the small number employees who are likely to cause accidents can go a long way to preventing collisions from ever occurring.
DriverCheck's vehicle collision avoidance systems focus on using motorist feedback from "How's My Driving" decals, which are placed on fleet vehicles to determine which drivers are engaging in unsafe behaviors. Once a driver has received a complaint, DriverCheck notifies the driver's manager and offers additional driver training based on the feedback. This training offers collision countermeasures targeted to deal specifically
with poor driving habits exhibited by the employee, such as tailgating, speeding, improper lane changes and not honoring right of way.
To ensure that these training courses are effective, drivers are tested on the information following the training. Additionally, the results of the test are forwarded to the employee's manager. Driver's that receive negative feedback and training, are also tracked to ensure that the training was effective and the employee's driving has improved.
The systems used by DriverCheck are so effective that they guarantee a 10 percent reduction in at fault collisions in the first year. However, on average, companies that begin using DriverCheck see their at fault collisions reduced by 40 percent or more. Since the average cost of an at fault collision with injury is 74,000, companies can see an incredible return on investment by using DriverCheck's collision avoidance and reduction systems.
DriverCheck's safety decal program began in 1986, and is now responsible for monitoring hundreds of thousands of fleet vehicles, and they are considered to be the standard for fleet safety. Their programs identify, monitor and train drivers, reducing risk and increasing profits.
