7 Steps to Get Started Monitoring and Modifying Driver Behavior
According to the FMCSA, in 2017 (latest figures available), 4,889 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes, a 9 percent increase from 2016. The critical pre-crash event for 73 percent of the large trucks in fatal crashes was another vehicle, person, animal, or object in the large truck’s lane or encroaching into it.
While truck drivers were not always at fault in these crashes, driver behavior certainly plays a role. Behaviors such as speeding and tailgating often contribute to crashes, or to a driver’s ability to avoid a crash even when he/she isn’t responsible for the pre-crash event.
In this event, Jonathan Bates, executive vice president of marketing at MiX Telematics will discuss how to get started monitoring and modifying driver behavior through telematics. Attendees will learn:
- How ELDs already provide fleets with most of the data they need to begin
- Key steps to take before you start a program
- Best practices for sharing data with drivers
- How to use pulse learning to keep safe driving skills fresh
