Avoid Distractions While Driving And Limit Risk

Use a GPS Vehicle Tracking System like GoTrack!

Take driving Speed, for example, which is a major problem for driving accidents, especially teens-most would agree.  With GoTrack reporting driving speed every minute, a parent or boss would be aware that a driver’s focus may be distracted (by looking at driving “Speed” under the “Detailed Activity” tab or under the “Speeding” tab).  Get an email or text alert when speed exceeds the driving speed you set (by clicking speed and enable notifications under Settings).

It’s likely being monitored while driving will encourage a potential risk driver to better focus on avoiding distractions and watch their speed driving when/if given a chance to drive by being aware the vehicle is tracked.  Some customers don’t inform their employees or drivers that their vehicles are tracked and decide driving options based on a GPS Vehicle Tracking System. We have received a call of relief of proof their employee was not speeding when falsely accused by one customer and gratitude by others to own a GoTrack Vehicle Tracking System to have safe driving speed validated if accused.

How about not eating or talking on a hand-held cell phone – when driving – this can be a distraction for even an experienced driver using a hands-free cell phone – some companies consider it a fireable offense.   The state of Georgia has a hands-free law that prohibits drivers from using hand-held cell phones while driving. It’s likely being monitored while driving will encourage the driver’s focus to avoid distractions. My husband’s truck company requires in-cab cameras on high violation point drivers.  GoTrack sells forward & in-cab driver cameras; talk with Sales for details at 1-800-772-2885 or email questions at Sales@gotrack.com.
