VEHICLE TRACKING

No matter the size of your fleet, you can save time and money using a fleet management system

Fleet management is the management of a fleet of vehicles belonging to a company and can include a wide range of functions and tasks, such as management of staff (drivers but also mechanics in some companies), of fuel costs, purchases and policies, vehicle investment, overall fleet costs (fuel, maintenance…), safety…

We know how challenging it is to be a fleet manager or, for smaller companies, simply the person in charge of running a fleet of vehicles. However at Legacy we make a fleet manager’s job a lot easier! To begin the process, we are able to track the organization equipment no matter the location through a GPS technology.

Vehicle tracking technology has been very popular for almost a couple of decades. Also known as GPS tracking, vehicle tracking is used by fleets for efficiency and cost-saving purposes, but also by businesses of any type and size that depend on the use of vehicles to develop their activity and wish to streamline their daily operations.

What is vehicle tracking?

Vehicle tracking, or GPS tracking, is a technology that combines the tracking of the location of a vehicle with a software interface that displays vehicle data. That data can be later used by companies as business intelligence in order to make informed decisions.

In order to capture vehicle data, a tracking device is installed inside the vehicles that have to be tracked. The device collects vehicle data of different types, from the turning on and off of the engine, to fuel consumption, to the working of vehicle-connected devices, to mention just a few, and matches the data with the location.

Location data is offered in most cases by the GPS (Global Positioning Service) radio-navigation system – hence the name GPS tracking – though in some other specific cases different location technologies can be used (for example, GLONASS, a satellite navigation system, or even other type of location technology).

DEFENSIVE DRIVING

Legacy Logistics Associates

Defensive Driving is essentially driving in a manner that utilizes safe driving strategies to enable motorists to address identified hazards in a predictable manner. These strategies go well beyond instruction on basic traffic laws and procedures.

It is a form of training for motor vehicle drivers that goes beyond mastery of the rules of the road and the basic mechanics of driving.

With defensive driving classes, students learn to improve their driving skills by reducing their driving risks by anticipating situations and making safe well-informed decisions. Such decisions are implemented based on road and environmental conditions present when completing a safe driving maneuver.

What’s Included in a Basic Defensive Driving Course

The contents of a defensive driving course are enormous and are designed to train you based on the traffic safety laws.

The sections below provide some basic outline of the information that is typically covered in our defensive driving courses.

Traffic Crashes

97% of all traffic crashes globally are caused by driver error. 1/3 of all traffic crashes are a result of aggressive driving.

Losses from traffic crashes have both social and personal impacts. Approximately 41,000 die annually as a result of traffic collisions, with an additional 3,236,000 injuries. About 38% of all fatal car crashes are alcohol related with another 30% attributed to speeding.

The causes of these crashes, emotional impact and cost in dollars spent on car crashes are typically covered in defensive driving courses. The goal of good defensive driving is to reduce the risk of these accidents by properly educating students to exercise caution and good judgment while driving.

Psychological Factors

On the roadways, drivers have to deal with several factors that can affect their driving. Though some of them are beyond the control of the driver, psychological factors can be controlled by the driver if he knows what to look for and how to handle it.

Defensive driving courses tend to focus on how drivers can overcome negative psychological factors such as unneeded stress, fatigue, emotional distress and road rage. They also offer instructions for developing a positive attitude behind the wheel and increasing your focus on the driving task.

Human Factors – DUI

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol continues to impact thousands of drivers each year. While the specific effect of each drug on your body takes place in differing stages, the effect of drivers operating a vehicle while under the influence is disastrous.

A very common component of all defensive driving courses is education about the role that drugs and alcohol play on America’s roadways. Topics tend to include the state’s limits as to blood-alcohol level, how your judgment, inhibitions, motor skills and senses are affected by drugs and alcohol and the consequences of being found guilty of driving under the influence.

The Dynamics of a Crash

Vehicle crashes are almost always a preventable result of a series of events. The combination of speed, place of impact and size of object being impacted can determine the severity of the crash. In every accident, however, the act of one vehicle hitting another vehicle or other object is not the only collision that can occur.

The concept of the second collision, in which the driver and other passengers collides with the windshield, seat or other object within the car when not wearing a seat belt can be just as dangerous as the initial collision.

Defensive driving courses address the issue of vehicle crashes and second collisions by listing the elements of a crash and illustrating how the forces of impact can be avoided or limited.

Safety Equipment

Approximately half of all deaths that are result of an automobile crash could have been avoided if the victim were wearing a safety belt properly. Of course safety belts are only the most commonly thought of vehicle safety equipment. Items such as air bags, child safety seats and head rests all serve to protect drivers and passengers and reduce the risk of injury or death in the event of a crash.

Defensive driving courses offer tips on how to use these devices properly and ensure your safety when traveling the roadways.

Crash Prevention Techniques

The key to any good defensive driving strategy is knowing how to avoid traffic crashes and recognize potential hazards before it’s too late. That’s why defensive driving courses tend to present a lot of information on crash prevention techniques.

In a typical defensive driving course, students learn crucial crash prevention techniques that include:

  • Scanning the roadway and adapting to surroundings
  • Employing the two-second rule for following distances
  • Knowing your vehicle’s stopping distance
  • Being aware of reaction distance
  • Environment hazards
  • Vehicle emergencies
  • Sharing the road
  • Passing and necessary clear distance
  • Right of way
  • Speed adjustments and railroad crossings

  • Defensive Driving on Demand- On demand class is at your convenience
  • Corporate Defensive Driving- Refresher courses, Joiners (No. of participants/students 10 onwards)
