Is Your Fleet Driving Safely?

Distracted driving and safety are at the top of everyone’s minds. With distraction-related collisions increasing in frequency, they now surpass drunk driving as the leading cause of collisions. As an example, the province of Saskatchewan reported 3,800 collisions in 2016 where distracted driving was a relevant factor. Fines are also becoming more of a concern, the average fine now is ~$300 and up to four demerit points, depending on where you live. In response, the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) is attempting to curb the epidemic of distracted drivers with an experimental voluntary program. They have enlisted volunteers to test a system that will detect and discourage drivers from being on their phones. As an incentive, drivers who choose to utilize this experimental system will get lower insurance rates. A recent study found that over two-thirds of business owners are worried that their employees are using mobile devices while driving for work. It was also found that 33% of organizations have not taken the necessary steps to prevent this behaviour.

High StakesHow to stop distracted driving

That number is surprisingly high considering the costs related to collisions involving commercial vehicle fleets are so high. Repairs, insurance claims, emergency response, lost productivity and costs related to health services rack up to a significant dollar value. A 2010 study found that the combined cost of a fatal accident is roughly $598,000 CDN, while the average non-fatal accident costs are $40,000 CDN. As a general rule, for every $1 spent on direct costs (fines, vehicle repair, medical), $4-$10 is spent on indirect costs (lost productivity, increased insurance premiums and harm to brand reputation). Thus the implications for both short-term and long-term profitability are immense. This is especially alarming considering that almost all collisions are preventable.

Enter Titan GPS iN-Cab Fleet Cameras

Our sophisticated Titan GPS iN-Cab Fleet Camera system allows fleet managers and business owners alike to virtually be next to all of their drivers simultaneously. Ensuring safety policies are being followed, and being able to historically track behavior is key to a safe and efficient fleet operation. Fleet managers can use our fleet video camera system to view live video feeds or past recorded video, plus be alerted to potential collisions with the forward facing “dash cams” and (optional) in-cab-facing cameras. When outfitted with both, fleet managers can ensure that drivers are where they are, and doing what they are supposed to be doing. Fleet camera video has a proven track record of reducing collision incidents by more than 35%. Contact us today and start your journey to a safer and higher performing fleet. In the meantime here are just a few of the benefits your fleet can receive from implementing Titan GPS iN-Cab Fleet Cameras.

Identify. Protect. Improve

Benefits:

  • Identify drivers that require safety training
  • Protect against fraudulent claims and remove any ambiguity regarding liability. On the unfortunate occasion of a collision, you’ll have video evidence of who is at fault. This can reduce the threat of civil litigation and cut down on legal fees.
  • Passive behavior improvement. We recognize that drivers might not be enthusiastic about being monitored while they drive, but the simple fact of the matter is that driver behavior improves if drivers know their actions are accountable. Drivers who know their actions are being monitored have reported a reduction in wasted fuel, unnecessary maintenance and repair costs.

See It In Action

Helping your drivers go from good to great means investing in their future. With an integrated Titan GPS iN-Cab Fleet Camera system, you have a powerful and objective tool with which to do so.
