How GPS Tracking Promotes Safe Driving

29 Apr 2020

Safe driving is something all fleets are concerned with. Whether you are a small or large fleet, driver safety affects many aspects of how your fleet functions, and the costs of operating your fleet. From insurance rates, to repairs, accidents, tickets, and more, safe driving matters.

Unfortunately, you can’t ride along with every driver to ensure they are doing things right and operating with absolute safety in mind. That doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about how your drivers operate when they are out of sight. GPS fleet tracking can be your most invaluable tool in your efforts to improve fleet safety. Here’s how.

Allows Real-Time Driving Alerts

With your GPS fleet tracking system, you have the option to set up real-time driving alerts that notify you by text message or email when drivers take certain actions behind the wheel.

The following are among the types of alerts you can create to keep up with how your drivers are doing even though they are out of sight.

  • Speeding
  • Swerving
  • Hard braking
  • Rapid accelerating
  • Deviating from assigned routes
  • Idling excessively

The goal is to keep your drivers and other people on the road safe. This helps to avoid accidents related to unsafe driving. It also helps to maintain your reputation in the community at the same time by promoting safer driving habits.

Automates Maintenance Scheduling

Preventative maintenance does so much more than to help your fleet vehicles operate more fuel efficiently. It can also extend the life of your vehicle and greatly improves vehicle safety. In fact, the safety factor is one of the most important reasons you need to automate your fleet’s maintenance scheduling through GPS fleet tracking.

It can be hard to keep up with the needs of multiple vehicles when it comes to maintenance. Your GPS fleet tracking system notifies you when individual vehicles require maintenance so you can manage these needs efficiently, before problems arise and maintenance related accidents occur.

Driver Knowledge of Monitoring

Believe it or not, simply knowing they are being monitored encourages many drivers to behave better behind the wheel. It’s not always easy to convince people to take care of the reputation and equipment of others. However, when they know they are being “watched” they are much more mindful of their speed and how they behave behind the wheel. Especially when they know their jobs rely on their good driving.

GPS tracking offers many benefits to fleet owners. One of the most important benefits isn’t in the  dollars it saves, but in the lives it can save by improving safety, all around, for your entire fleet.
