Fleet FAQ? How to Start Improving Cell Phone Safety

Q. What’s a good starting point for addressing cell phone safety?

A. First, communicate with employees and drivers the crash risks and the need for a policy. Cell-phone use continues to be one of the major causes for fleet-related crashes. The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates that cell-phone use accounts for 27% of vehicular crashes. A policy along with driver education will create a foundation for a safer environment and help make sure each driver/employee remains safe on the roadways.
