Two large cars, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Dodge Charger HEMI which are known for their powerful engines, made it to the top of the Highway Loss Data Institute’s (HLDI’s) list of most likely to be stolen vehicles.

Both of these cars have a claim rate for whole-vehicle theft that’s over five times the average for 2016 through 2018 models. The Infiniti Q50 which is a midsize luxury sedan does too. Almost all 20 models that have the highest theft rate are either pickups, luxury vehicles or those with big engines.

The regular two- and four-door Dodge Charger is another target. It’s marketed as “America’s mid-sized muscle car” and ranges from almost 300 to over 700 horsepower.

Pricey vehicles with horsepower, bling and pop culture appeal attract thieves, according to Russ Rader, HLDI spokesman.

Fall is a time for cooler temperatures, falling leaves and a whole lot of organic mess in municipal streets. While those beautiful yellow, red and orange leaves look great in trees, they’re not so great when they fall and end up covering the streets, leaving sweeping crews with a big cleanup on their hands.

Keeping your streets clear of fallen leaves is an important job too. It requires thoroughness, efficiency and dedication. But, when you have a large fleet and a tight budget, it can be challenging. This is where GPS fleet tracking for your street sweeping operation comes in.

How GPS Tracking Can Help Municipal Fleets

Here are some ways GPS tracking can help your municipal fleet during fall lead collection season.

  1. Improving Accountability and Efficiency

GPS tracking technology can help improve your municipal fleet’s efficiency in various ways. It can help you plan efficient routes through the review of location, speed and route data, minimizing this expense.  You can use GPS data for a number of ways, including:

  • Identifying areas that haven’t been swept yet (or those that have)
  • Rerouting around traffic delays
  • Locating and monitoring vehicle activity

The decision to invest in GPS fleet tracking solutions for your organization can improve safety, cut costs, and build better relationships with your customers and your employees. Before you dive in, though, there are seven questions you need to ask.

  1. Will it be easy to use within your organization?

You need to invest in a GPS fleet tracking system that is not only intuitive and easy for you to use, but one that can be used widely by drivers and other team members to help keep everyone on the same page.

  1. What kind of customer support can you expect as you set up and once you go live?

Many companies offer outstanding customer support through the sales and set up process. Far too many, though, leave businesses, like yours, on their own when it comes to actually using the services they pay for month after month. Make sure you work with a company that offers ongoing customer support, so you have access and assistance when you need it most.
