How’s My Driving? - Safe Driving Blog Tips
We have teamed up with innovative fleet insurance broker, Just Fleet, in our quest to help fleet managers reduce road risk and the associated costs. The agreement means that all Just Fleet clients will automatically pre-qualify for the How’s My Driving? safety scheme.
Just Fleet are the first specialist motor fleet insurance broker in the UK to fit accident cameras on all vehicles. The cameras monitor fleet vehicles 24 hours a day and provide vital video footage of accidents and other incidents on the road. In addition, the cameras relay g-force and impact speed data which is available through an online interface within 15 minutes of the incident occurring.
The use of forward facing cameras, coupled with the How’s My Driving? badge and reporting system, helps reduce the cost of accidents in three main areas:
- Improves the claims process by providing quick and accurate evidence of the incident. This means a reduction in the time taken to settle claims which, in turn, reduces cost of third-party hire and repairs
- Improvement in driver behaviour and awareness of potential hazards leads to a proven reduction in the number of incidents; this is true of the both the camera and the How’s My Driving? badge
- Ultimately, quicker claims and better driving leads to a reduction in insurance premiums.
The Just Fleet ethos fits perfectly with that of How’s My Driving? Together we aim to inspire a cultural shift within the commercial fleet management sector. By encouraging greater awareness amongst drivers and giving fleet managers the tools to identify and address underperformance, the scheme could make a real difference to accident rates whilst reducing overhead associated with road risk.
