Of 3 million events coached this summer, the following five risky behaviors were the most prevalent, with drivers not wearing seatbelts and unsafe following distance together accounting for 54% of the top five, according to data from Lytx.
When breaking down the top five risky behaviors by percentage of events observed where a risky action occurred, drivers not wearing seat belts was at 28%; having a following distance under 2 second was at 26%, violating the posted speed limit was 9%, failing to stop occurred 8% of the time, and performing an incomplete stop was at 7%
“Seatbelt use continues to stand out as both a top behavior fleets are actively looking to address and one that drivers continue to struggle with, despite the inherent dangers and risk of policy violations and citations,” said Del Lisk, Lytx’s vice president of safety services. “Drivers cited for not wearing a seatbelt are 3.4% more likely to get into a collision, and remains a priority for nearly every driver and fleet. Because of this, seatbelt use is one of eight behaviors we proactively issue in-cab alerts for, helping drivers to self-correct in real-time.”
These insights were derived from the more than 3 million event clips captured by Lytx MV+AI-powered DriveCam Event Recorders and coached by its clients throughout June, July and August 2020.
