How fleet owners can make their fleet safe?
The majority of traffic accidents are caused by unsafe driving, which are not only expensive in terms of repairing cars and other equipment, paying insurance premiums, receiving penalties, causing property damage, but most importantly, endangering the well-being and safety of both drivers and pedestrians. Over 65% of accidents occur because of vehicle’s over speeding, drivers violating traffic signals, or atrocious vehicle maintenance. According to research, 81% of the mortality rate in hospitals is due to road traffic accidents, while traffic accident victims occupy 20% of their beds. Besides this, statistics also indicate 79.2% of patients admitted to hospitals with spinal injuries have sustained injuries due to a motor vehicle accident.
