Lytx Looking for Superstars of Safety:


Registration Now Open for 2016 ‘Driver of the Year’ and ‘Coach of the Year’ Awards

SAN DIEGO (Nov. 20, 2015) – Is there a true guardian of the roadway on your team whose exceptional safe driving skills make every road they encounter a better one? Lytx, Inc., a global leader in delivering video-based driver safety and compliance solutions, today opened entries for its annual “Driver of the Year” and “Coach of the Year” awards to recognize these superstars.

The Lytx Driver of the Year and Coach of the Year awards honor individuals recognized as the best and safest drivers by organizations currently using the Lytx DriveCam program to improve overall fleet safety. Award submissions, which may be completed online, are due by Jan. 4, 2016 and winners will be announced at the Lytx® Users Group Conference to be held Feb. 22 – 24 in San Diego. Winners receive a monetary prize, and the first place winners will be awarded an expense-paid trip to San Diego to accept their awards.

“Safe drivers don’t just keep themselves and their cargo safe – they help keep roads safe for everyone around them,” said Del Lisk, vice president of Safety Solutions for Lytx, Inc. “These stellar drivers and coaches come from different sectors of the transportation industry, traveling different routes, but they share a common goal of making every journey a safe one.”

Lytx will recognize drivers who operate their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner, who have exceled in the DriveCam® program, and whose contributions have enhanced the overall image of professional driver safety. The Coach of the Year award honors those who have risen above others in their coaching role, and whose contributions have enhanced the overall safety of their organization, by helping their drivers develop and improve their safe driving skills.

Past honorees have come from organizations as diverse as Cemex, Waste Management, Renzenberger, Inc., and City of Tyler, Texas.

Lytx DriveCam programs help prevent incidents, reduce injuries and save lives by combining video with predictive analytics, real-time driver feedback and coaching, empowering fleets to identify and correct the driving behaviors that lead to collisions, before they occur. A May 2014 Virginia Tech Transportation Institute study reported that more than 800 lives could potentially be saved each year using video-based driver safety technology, and that the Lytx DriveCam program alone has the potential to prevent more than 25,000 commercial vehicle collisions and nearly 40,000 injuries annually.
