When it comes to corporate traffic safety; added vehicle communications, telematics devices, smartphones (Hands-free or otherwise) and vehicle driver aid technology systems can certainly make for greater efficiency and in some cases increased safety. However, in many cases these systems and devices can add significant distractions to a driver's responsibilities. There must always be a balance between safe driving practices and increased duties behind the wheel.
Corporate liability costs related to traffic collisions and crashes involving distracted driving have increased at an incredible rate since 2014. Many of these corporate collisions and crashes are due to employee’s choosing to drive distracted while doing corporate business or while driving distracted in a company vehicle. Corporations can and must do better in addressing training and employee best practices, when it comes to driving in company vehicles and phone use of any kind while in a company or personal vehicle. Cutting-edge education materials developed by the TSEF are ideally suited for use in this critical area of business and are now being utilized by corporations all over the US.
