The second installment in a 3-part series, this blog shows how even a robust driver self-reporting policy couldn’t save this employer from a guilty verdict and millions in damages.
The first, in a 3-part series, Fleet Liability Blog Series Part 1: Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle, examines a real life liability court case involving a negligent hiring, training, supervision and entrustment claim.
Enforcing a fleet safety program can't be done in a vacuum. Fleet managers, along with fleet stakeholders--including HR, legal, and risk management departments--must develop a clear set of policies that are easily communicated and understood by drivers and other employees.
According to conventional wisdom, pulling a driver’s motor vehicle record (MVR) once a year is enough to identify risky drivers. In fact, it gives risky drivers a long grace period before discovery and unnecessarily raises the fleet’s risk profile and potential for a costly liability claim.
Technology is making fleets safer. Continuous MVR monitoring can alert fleet managers and company leadership to any driver with an elevated risk profile, allowing the behavior to be corrected before a more serious incident occurs.
