A study by Instructional Technologies Inc., provider of Pro-Tread online safety training, showed that Pro-Tread clients' CSA BASIC scores averaged 30 point less than average industry CSA scores.

The study also showed a positive correlation between the number of lessons taken per driver and BASIC scores.

The results of the study are as follows:

- All Pro-Tread Clients had 26.4 points less than the industry average.
- Pro-Tread Clients that had four or more lessons per driver per year had 29.9 points less than the industry average.
- Pro- Tread Clients taking six or more lessons per driver per year had 34 points less than the industry average.

"'Does Pro-Tread training really makes us safer?' Fleets have asked that question for years," says CEO Dr. James Voorhees. "It's a smart question, and we struggled to give a data-driven answer because, frankly, carriers are reluctant to share information about how much they spend on crashes, injuries, and lawsuits. And while we can share anecdotal information - small and large fleets tell us they've reduced crash costs 20% or more when they start training with Pro-Tread- it's not the quantifiable answer that savvy clients want. That's frustrating for you and frustrating for us."
