All Truck Transportation, a Midwest's local and regional truckload carrier, announced that after a three-month head-to-head competitive trial and extensive evaluation, it has signed a five-year agreement to implement the Lytx DriveCam safety program to protect the drivers who operate the company's fleet of more than 350 trucks.
In the first six months, All Truck realized a reduction in risky behaviors that led to fewer and less-severe collisions, while addressing key factors that can affect driver health and wellbeing, including:
- 69% reduction in unbelted drivers on residential roadways.
- 52% reduction in red-light traffic violations.
- 44% reduction in handheld cell phone use.
- 69% reduction in smoking.
All Truck implemented Lytx's ER-SV2 event recorder and flagship DriveCam safety program along with the Lytx ActiveVision service. ActiveVision uses machine learning and a precision analytics algorithm to detect and capture driving patterns consistent with distracted and drowsy driving.
The real-time alerts All Truck drivers receive as part of the ActiveVision service encourage immediate self-correction. Lytx remains the only video telematics provider to offer integrated machine vision capabilities in a single device–proven to be effective for over two years in 55,000-plus vehicles to mitigate fatigued and distracted driving.
Lytx's DriveCam safety program combines video capture of road incidents, such as hard braking or sudden swerving, data analysis of those incidents, and personalized coaching insights to improve driving behavior. The DriveCam safety solution has been associated with an up to 50% reduction in collisions.
