Got Questions? Modern Telematics Best Practices

Q. What are some of the risks in terms of driver safety that I may not even be thinking about?

Drivers have a lot to think about when they are carrying freight to its intended destination. Training them to identify hazards before they cause accidents is one of the most important aspects to driver training — proactive vs. reactive driving. By recognizing others’ unsafe driving behaviors, your fleet drivers can alter their behaviors to keep them and your vehicles out of harm’s way. For example, if a driver notices another vehicle swerving, they can slow down and let the vehicle pass, removing the possibility that they cause an accident.
