In a report released late last year, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed a dramatic increase in vehicular fatalities, spotlighting the need for more proactive live-saving measures to be taken.
Despite a decline in driving throughout the country, the number of fatalities reported in the first three months of 2021 was 10.5% higher than those projected during the same time in 2020. The NHTSA’s report identified motorist and truck driving behaviors contributing to these fatalities, which include:
- Distracted driving
- Failure to wear seat belts
To achieve better protection for all drivers on the road, fleet managers have an opportunity to prevent risky driver behavior through the use of smart safety apps. Speed, seat belt use, and focus on the road can be effectively monitored and managed through telematics solutions from providers like SafeSpeed and LifeSaver.
Roadz provides fleets with easy access to these safety apps and plenty more through an ecosystem of carefully curated solutions that offer an integrated and unified experience to its fleet users.
Implementation of these solutions plus comprehensive driver training can put fleets on a path toward more proactive risk management and better accident prevention for all drivers. Read the press release and report from the NHTSA to learn more.
