Imagine Your Drivers Avoiding or Preventing Vehicle Accidents

Do your drivers ever have on-the-job vehicle accidents they reasonably could have avoided or prevented?

It may appear that certain types of accidents can be classified as preventable or non-preventable. This is misleading, however, and does not reflect the impact a comprehensive safety program can have, according to Rich Radi, director of product management for ARI.

“Almost all collisions are preventable; 95 percent of collisions happen because of human driver error on one party or another. If you’re driving defensively, are well-trained and are really conscious of your driving behavior, then you can prevent almost any accident from occurring,” he said.

This advice from Radi and more appears in a recent article: “Ways to Reduce Preventable Accidents.” To read the entire article, visit Fleet Financials Magazine. And for more information to strengthen your safety policy and program, download our Best Practices Guide for Fleet Safety.
