City of Tyler, TX Uses DriveCam to Recognize Safest City Drivers


SAN DIEGO, CA – September 18, 2012 – DriveCam, Inc., a global Driver Risk Management Company, today announced that the City of Tyler, TX  has committed to a 5-year agreement to deploy all of its solid waste, transit and public works vehicles on DriveCam’s Managed Services Program. In addition, the City has committed to implementing DriveCam’s Fleet Tracking solution.  As a result of the information provided by the DriveCam Program, Tyler was able to determine its safest drivers and recognized them in a public ceremony.

Seven solid waste drivers were recognized at the event held on Aug. 29, 2012. These seven employees participated in the DriveCam Program for the six-month period from Jan. 1-June 30 without displaying any risky or coachable behavior while driving city-owned vehicles. Each individual received a “Top Performer” City of Tyler shirt and a framed certificate presented by City Manager, Mark McDaniel.

“During our six month trial, the City of Tyler saw tremendous results with DriveCam,” said Sara McCracken from Risk Management. “DriveCam resulted in a 56 percent decrease in costs associated with collisions during the trial and helped identify our safest drivers.”

“We are proud to be working with the City of Tyler, where safety is a core value,” commented DriveCam CEO Brandon Nixon. “As evidenced by our Managed Services Program and Fleet Tracking Solution, DriveCam supports the value of safety within the city’s fleet and continues to innovate to bring exceptional value to cities around the country.”

DriveCam addresses the causes of poor driving by combining data and video analytics with real-time driver feedback and coaching, resulting in reductions in collision-related costs and fuel consumption. This is accomplished using DriveCam’s Driver Science Engine, a classification model that assists in predicting the riskiest drivers within a fleet. Through a patented, iterative process of scoring, prioritizing and tracking the results of driving behaviors, this model identifies those behaviors that will most likely lead to a collision and has provided significant savings by helping fleets more effectively manage their drivers. Driving behaviors are captured through in-cab video, which are objectively reviewed and scored and then passed on to the fleet for use in coaching drivers; video provides the objective context for discussion with drivers about their behavior. Fleets, like Tyler manage the DriveCam Program through DriveCam Online®, a web-based online portal. Seamlessly integrated into DriveCam’s DC3 event recorder and the DriveCam Online reporting solution, DriveCam’s Fleet Tracking Solution provides a real-time view of fleet operations – helping to ensure compliance and improve productivity – with immediate access to real-time status, trip history and a suite of reports.
