GPS Tracking for Fleet Tracking and Vehicle Tracking Reduces Driver Safety Risk (part 1 of 2)

Key health & safety issues underpin 2010 risk management studies into latest fleet operating agendas. Fleet running organisations have become to recognise that vehicle tracking systems are an indispensable lifeline.

Reports consistently show that half of all company owned fleet vehicles will be involved in an accident within the same 12 months, and over two thirds of the accidents were also found to be the fault of the drivers. Further studies reveal that the majority of incidents involve broken glass, employees driving into the back of the vehicle and collisions with static objects such as a wall.

Given that company vehicle drivers daily spend considerably more time on the road, it is understandable that they would likely have an increased accident rate. It has been estimated that once vehicle time off the road and loss of potential sales are factored in, the real cost of every accident repair is actually three times higher than the actual cost of the vehicle repair itself.
