Monitoring Drivers for At-Risk Behavior

Supervising drivers is a challenging task, especially with over-the-road drivers who can be gone for weeks on end. Fortunately, technology is making it easier for motor carriers to monitor drivers for at-risk behaviors in a proactive, rather than reactive, way.

White Paper Summary

According to a 2014 study by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the average cost of all large truck crashes is approximately $91,000 per crash. That amount can increase exponentially if injuries and fatalities are involved. Avoiding the indirect costs associated with a loss, meaning the unbudgeted expenses not covered by insurance, is imperative. While the root cause of a crash may not be your driver, experience has shown that future crashes can be predicted based on leading indicators, such as a driver’s history of at-risk behaviors. These behaviors can include speeding, following too closely, and making frequent lane changes, to name a few. If a driver continues to exhibit these behaviors, then the chances of him/her being involved in a future crash is more likely.
