How Kingwo GPS Tracking Prevents these 3 Unsafe Driving Behavoir2019-07-08

Fleet management’s priorities should always be the safety of their drivers. If they practice unsafe driving habits, it doesn’t just affect them. Reckless driving also impacts the safety of other motorists on the road, pedestrians, your vehicles, and the cargo they carry.


You does not want to take on that risk, how can you prevent three of the most common unsafe driving violations: distracted driving, speeding, and hard braking and turning?


Distracted Driving

In 2018 alone, distracted driving claimed 3,066 lives — meaning fleet management must prioritize identifying and correcting distracted driving habits.


With Kingwo GPS tracking, you can remotely track a vehicle’s location and handling in real-time. By using GPS tracking system, you can even monitor whether your drivers are sticking to their assigned routes. If they’re on a route that they regularly take, your drivers won’t need to constantly look at the GPS to see where they’re headed — instead, they can keep their eyes on the road. With Kingwo gps tracking, our portable GPS tracking device, you can also customize reporting at specific intervals to receive location data, plus data about several other important factors, including:


Pressure and motion

Vehicle acceleration and deceleration

Light, humidity, and temperature


All of these features help you track where, when, and how vehicles in your fleet are being driven. This way, you can monitor how safely each vehicle is being handled and the types of environmental conditions in which your drivers are operating.


Speeding

Speeding has been involved in almost one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities for over two decades. In 2018 alone, speeding was a contributing factor in 24% of all traffic fatalities.


You may be thinking that it’s impossible to know how fast your drivers are going unless you’re physically in the car with them. However, a GPS tracking system allows you to monitor the speeds at which your vehicles are traveling from any remote location. It can also track how quickly your drivers accelerate and decelerate, plus how quickly they move through intersections.


speeding doesn’t just mean driving over the posted speed limit. If a driver is driving at the speed limit, but that is too fast for the current road conditions, it is also a huge safety concern. if there is bad weather, construction on the road, or a stretch of road that isn’t well lit at night, drivers may need to adjust and drive below the speed limit to ensure their safety.


With Kingwo GPS tracking system that also monitors environmental conditions such as pressure, light, humidity, noise, and temperature, you can easily identify when drivers are going through potentially unsafe driving conditions. Then, you can more closely monitor their driving habits, send them an alert information.


Hard Braking and Turning

When the occasional hard braking and turning can be expected in the case of an emergency, it shouldn’t be a regular occurrence. If you see this kind of behavior often, it could mean that your fleet drivers are not adhering to safety guidelines and may be habitually distracted while driving. How can you determine if a driver has a history of hard braking and turning?


Kingwo GPS tracking products, is ideal for the fleet manager. It will alert fleet management if there is an instance of harsh braking, hard turning, or rapid acceleration. With our comprehensive data reports, you will be able to easily see if the need for hard braking or turning was a one-off instance, or if a particular driver has a pattern of unsafe driving practices.
