FLEET SAFETY: HOW TO SAVE LIVES AND MONEY

The topic of this article is how fleet operators can reduce the number of motor vehicle collision fatalities among their drivers and cut the costs of motor vehicle crashes which currently stand at more than $17.1 billion for on-the-job motor vehicle crashes in the United States. Suggested actions include assessing the fleet's safety and identifying problem areas, driver education in defensive-driving techniques, the DriverCheck program (a toll-free number on the vehicle that motorists can call to report good or bad driving), and vehicle safety features such as air bags and antilock brakes.
