Excessive idle-time, speeding, harsh braking or cornering, and rapid acceleration are primarily responsible for increasing fuel costs and eating away at a company’s bottom line. These issues can be addressed by tracking and assessing driver behavior.
At worst, speeding puts drivers and pedestrians’ lives at mortal risk. At best it increases vehicle wear and tear and incurs expensive speeding tickets.
Excessive idling has a direct and negative impact on engine maintenance and fuel consumption.
Harsh braking indicates aggressive and unsafe driving, not to mention inefficient fuel use.
Excessive use of the vehicle steering wheel suggests a vehicle is being driven recklessly, which increases wear and tear on the vehicle and endangers lives.
Rapid acceleration suggests the driver is operating uneconomically, rashly and potentially putting people’s lives at risk.
