Why LSO was Ready for a Video-Based Safety Program
LSO, formerly Lone Star Overnight, has adopted the SmartDrive video-based safety program. LSO, which delivers throughout the Southwest and Mexico, selected SmartDrive technology as part of its commitment to enhance the company’s safety program. Since implementing the SmartDrive program, LSO has improved its safety score by 47 percent and identified key areas to focus driver training.
Why the SmartDrive® program is the Smart Choice for Lone Star Overnight
LSO utilizes the SmartDrive system and references video footage during driver trainings to address issues and recognize drivers that have demonstrated good driving skills. After LSO deployed the SmartDrive program at one of its sites, they were able to lower the risks that are key leading indicators of collisions – seatbelt compliance improved by 100 percent, while mobile phone usage and texting were reduced by 90 percent and 69 percent respectively. Excessive speeding issues were cut in half, while incomplete stops were lowered by 82 percent and unsafe following decreased by 77 percent.

Maximizing the Value of their Investment
LSO drivers continue to see the benefits of SmartDrive video-based technology, already exonerating drivers from calls reported via the company’s complaint line. Additionally, the system has helped identify driver fatigue issues, capturing risky nighttime driving and providing video for further coaching and training.
