Trevose, PA, August 18, 2016 – CEI has enhanced DriverCare™, its fleet driver safety and risk management application, to make it easier for fleets to administer a driver violation self-reporting requirement.
“Many fleets see the value in driver self-reporting, but find the administrative burden too difficult,” said Brian Kinniry, CEI’s senior director of strategic service. “Now, DriverCare can take that burden off their shoulders so they can take advantage of the safety benefits.”
To report the receipt of a motor vehicle ticket, drivers log in their DriverCare home page and click on an icon labeled “Report an Event.” A pop-up window then appears on their computer screen they enter the date, select the kind of event, and enter any additional comments as required by their fleet.
DriverCare automatically checks the driver’s Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) 45 days after the report to verify whether the driver has been convicted of the violation. If so, the application adjusts the driver’s risk score and, if the event pushes the driver into a higher risk level, automatically notifies the driver and assigns online training appropriate to their history of accidents and violations.
To enforce compliance with a self-reporting requirement, fleet safety policies spell out a penalty – usually additional violation points – if a future MVR shows a conviction that the driver didn’t report.
“Ordinarily, administering a self-reporting requirement is very time-consuming and labor-intensive for fleets,” said Mr. Kinniry. “DriverCare’s self-reporting feature automates the whole process.”
Mr. Kinniry said the advantages of self-reporting include more driver visits to the fleet’s DriverCare site and greater driver safety awareness.
