How to Improve Fleet Safety on the Road

Did you know that 273,000 trucking accidents occurred in the United States in 2011? Approximately 88,000 of those crashes resulted in injuries and 3,300 resulted in fatalities. If you own or manage a truck fleet, hearing these statistics should validate fleet safety as one of your main concerns. Keeping your drivers and others on the road safe can be difficult, and more rigorous federal and state regulations that limit drivers' hours can prove challenging to productivity and profitability, with implications for increased administrative time and expense, insurance premiums, fuel and other costs. Concerns about driver distraction and driving behavior have become paramount in the quest for improved fleet safety. In addition to the risk of personal injury, safety lapses can also lead to potential loss of cargo and customers.

At Omnitracs, we want to help make your fleet safer. So, we’ve created a guide that details the different causes of crashes and explains how fleet management technology can help reduce the risk of hazardous driving situations, making the roads safer for everyone.
