How to Identify a Risky Driver

By March 9, 2023No Comments

Identifying a risky driver using GPS tracking devices and Dash Cams can be a valuable tool for fleet managers or insurance companies to improve safety and reduce accidents.

Here are some ways to identify risky drivers in your fleet using GPS tracking solutions:

  1. Harsh Acceleration and Braking: GPS tracking systems can detect sudden acceleration and braking events. Drivers who frequently accelerate and brake suddenly are more likely to be involved in accidents.
  2. Speeding: GPS tracking can monitor a driver’s speed, and drivers who consistently exceed the speed limit are at higher risk for accidents.
  3. Distracted Driving: Dash Cams can detect whether a driver is using their phone while driving. Drivers who frequently use their phone while driving are more likely to be involved in accidents.
  4. Route Deviation: GPS tracking can also detect when a driver deviates from their designated route. Frequent route deviation can indicate that a driver is not following safe driving practices.
  5. Time of Day: Analyzing GPS tracking data can also reveal patterns in driver behavior at different times of the day. For example, drivers who frequently drive during rush hour or at night may be at higher risk for accidents.

By monitoring these factors, fleet managers or insurance companies can identify and address risky driver behaviors, reduce the likelihood of accidents, and ultimately save lives.
