Liability: Why 'Good Enough' Isn't Enough

Liability Costs Continue to be a Reality for Fleets

When accident liability is in question, fleet managers need to be aware of their driver’s most current safety history. Not employing a continuous MVR monitoring program is a risky position for fleets, exposing them to potential liability. The “good enough” approach of pulling a motor vehicle record (MVR) once per year or less is becoming an increasingly outdated and risky practice. The evolution of continuous MVR monitoring programs has resulted in a powerful tool for fleet managers to employ in identifying risky activities, correcting them, and avoiding the potential or costly liability in a proactive manner before serious incidents can occur.
