Unfortunately, accidents are a fact of life. Although effective accident management can ensure that your vehicles are back on the road as quickly as possible, actually cutting back the number of accidents is the most sure-fire way of driving down costs. Looking into accident data and identifying possible trends could help you take measures to reduce the number of incidents.
For instance, you could check whether the same type of accidents are occurring in terms of damage, specific items needing repair, the same drivers, particular environments, times or locations. Based on your findings, improve driving behaviour through driver training for your ‘less careful’ drivers, or placing in-car cameras or sensors to help drivers while reversing. But, even some more indirect options, such as hands free, voice control and text-to-speech Bluetooth connectivity, or cameras to record driving behaviour could be of great value (at minimal cost) to cut down on accidents.
