How driver’s behavior can prevent faulty collisions?

Have you ever wondered why hiring an experienced driver did not save your asset from an accident? Why your competitor organization is good at saving their assets? Even though they do not hire skilled drivers.

Most of the time a skillful driver does not always mean safe driver.  But the question arises why? According to the statistics 94% car crashes are caused by human error. How do you define human error? Human error is the behavior of driver on the road. Majority of these car crashes are because of over speeding, road rage, drained energy, and distractions behind the wheel. With the development of new safety features in vehicles such as airbags, seat belts, electronic stability control: there should be reduced fatal incidents but on the contrary, we have seen the drastic increase in accidents since 2015. 

Distractions behind the wheel can be of any type. It can be due to eating, talking, poor concentration due to the fatigue or the use of cell phone.  Most of the collisions can be avoided by removing distractions.

Most of the on-road drivers are experienced with the proper knowledge to handle difficult situations and are well aware of the laws. But their overconfidence to manage the distraction – also known as “Distraction denial”, leads to undesirable incidents. Such drivers need to be encouraged to stop thinking inwardly. They should be educated to focus on the outcome of risky driving resulting from distractions, which may affect the lives of others who are probably driving safely. For new hiring, one should also consider the attitude of the driver. Implement a crash-free culture for your employees in the organization by saying no to conference calls or on-call meetings, while one is on road.

Score the performance of driver’s behavior. Eagle-I provides the insight of driver behavior i.e. speeding, harsh acceleration, cornering, braking, seat-belt status. By analyzing the driver behavior, training can be altered to meet their specific needs which will prove to be beneficial in retraining their attitudes and behavior. Driver’s scorecard will also emancipate the high-risk drivers to changeover to low-risk drivers.
