OKLAHOMA CITY (Oct. 22, 2014) - Driving down the highway on a normal day involves risk, even for the best of drivers; add bad weather, road construction and traffic to the mix, and there is a greater potential for danger. This threat is magnified when an aggressive driver enters the scene.

How many news reports are seen involving wrecks with a semi truck? How many times have drivers been scared out of their mind on the highway when an aggressive trucker is on their tail? If a business owns a fleet, finding out that a member of their fleet was responsible for a wreck involving injury or death is the last thing they want. A GPS tracker cannot give a 100 percent guarantee to always keep drivers and a business's name safe, but it sure can help.

Vehicles and drivers are an advertisement for their business. If a driver is the one on the road who is weaving in and out of the lanes, driving too close to other drivers, not using proper turn signals or honking at drivers who are going the speed limit, they are not going to be the one who looks bad. It will be the business from all the decals placed on the poorly driven vehicle not the driver.

A GPS tracker can help a business identify these problem individuals who would rather risk the safety of others to carelessly get the job done. These are not the kind of people a respectable business wants representing them on the road. With a GPS tracker system the business will be able to:

See what speed their drivers are going and if it is above or below the required speed. Speed limits are set for a reason, drivers not following these guidelines become a liability.
Pinpoint consistencies in abrupt or extreme braking. If there is a pattern of constant braking, this will more than likely due to aggressive driving.
See hours that a vehicle is in use. Sleepy drivers are also dangerous drivers. If a driver is consistently exceeding drive time limits, a business can take the needed action to eliminate this hazard to the highways and the lives of others.
A good business owner understands that the decisions their drivers make, can put a life-long red mark not only on their business name, but also on their personal lives. They would not allow a driver’s road-rage to leave them feeling their business was responsible for taking the life of another. Stop aggressive drivers in their tracks with a GPS tracker.
