The role of data and tech in combating distracted driving

Distracted driving is becoming more and more common with the increasing use of smartphones and other mobile devices. Accidents with distracted drivers can be especially severe in terms of both injuries and vehicle damage. Furthermore, they can leave trucking companies throughout Virginia and the rest of America with delays and insurance claims to deal with. However, new technology may prove to be the solution to this trend.

Study analyzes work truck safety by state

Truck drivers in Virginia will be glad to know that this state is among the top 10 safest states for those in their industry. This is according to a study from Verizon Connect, a fleet management systems provider. The company analyzed data ranging from October 2015 to September 2017 and recording the driver behaviors of more than 6,200 of its fleet customers; these included small and mid-size businesses with 2 to 200 work trucks, such as big rigs, light vans and pick-ups.
