Truck Fleets Use Monitoring Systems to Assess Driver Behavior

Light & Medium Truck - March 18, 2012

Fleet oper­a­tors face increas­ing chal­lenges in main­tain­ing aware­ness and con­trol of their dri­vers’ actions in the cabs of their trucks. In addi­tion to the pos­si­bil­i­ty of fines being levied against fleet oper­a­tors and dri­vers who fail to com­ply with the ban on hand­held phones, dis­tract­ed dri­vers also present a safe­ty haz­ard on the road. More fleets are now using mon­i­tor­ing sys­tems as part of their safe­ty pro­grams that include dri­ver train­ing and behind-the-wheel behav­ior assess­ment.
