The DriveCam Difference

Dart Transit Company is a truckload carrier with 1,500 owner-operator drivers. To uphold its culture of safety, and better protect drivers and the motoring public, Dart chose to implement the DriveCam® safety programme.

Dart drivers’ jobs are difficult because, too often, the motoring public doesn't know how to drive around big rigs, increasing the risk of a collision.

In addition, it’s difficult proving drivers are innocent after collisions they didn’t cause, and being found at fault could ultimately end their careers in transportation.

The DriveCam safety programme helped to change that. It made Dart drivers safer as they used DriveCam technology as “another set of eyes” that helped increase awareness and alertness. Plus, it exonerated drivers, showing they were not at fault in certain accidents.

In the end, the DriveCam programme helped protect Dart drivers and the motoring public by improving following distance and late response, and reducing near collisions.
