If your company has a fleet, large or small, crashes are likely your greatest challenge. Even one claim can sideline staff and vehicle and impact business.
Among the most common causes of this often-expensive claim is distracted driving. Drivers using cell phones or GPS devices, changing the radio or drinking coffee can sometimes also cause fatal crashes: in 2019, there were more than 3,000 highway fatalities associated with distracted driving, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Valuable services for Hanover policyholders
To help our commercial auto insurance clients address these highly preventable crashes, Hanover Risk Solutions has partnered with BlueArrow Telematics as part of the Hanover i-on Fleet Telematics Program. BlueArrow’s Associate Pledge telematics program is designed to limit unsafe use of mobile devices through a smartphone app to help prevent crashes and manage drivers.
BlueArrow’s app mitigates the use of handsets while in motion, monitors GPS location and phone usage, while providing real-time notification of activity that violates mobile device usage policies. The data creates a dashboard of daily driver performance results associated with risky event triggers, including:
- Rapid acceleration and deceleration
- Hard left and right turns
- Cell phone usage while the vehicle is in motion
This data can help our Risk Solutions team to help you find the resources that address the real-time needs of your fleet and help prevent distracted driving crashes.
