SAN DIEGO – DriveCam Inc., a global Driver Risk Management (DRM) company, announced at RIMS 2008 that PestSure, a nationwide association of pest control operators, has selected DriveCam’s behavior-based risk mitigation solution to improve the safety of its fleet and reduce vehicle damages, personal injury and workers’ compensation claims costs associated with risky driving.

In addition to making the DriveCam solution available to all PestSure members, the association is offering a subsidy to its members to help encourage them to participate in DriveCam’s Managed Services program. This level of investment is a result of PestSure’s commitment to reducing risky driving among its members’ fleets.

“DriveCam has a cutting-edge solution that improves the overall safety performance of our companies’ fleets and reduces claims costs associated with risky driving,” said Victor Hammel, president, PestSure. “Our expanding program is a result of PestSure companies already using the DriveCam program for several years with proven success. Results and feedback from member companies already enrolled in the program have been overwhelmingly positive.”

Regarding the decision to subsidize member organizations, Hammel added, “The goal of the PestSure DriveCam program is to significantly reduce the number of crashes and the resulting liability claims that occur within the PestSure auto liability line of coverage. We hope to accomplish this through the deployment of the DriveCam Driver Risk Management program throughout our membership, and look forward to permanently changing unsafe driving behavior among our fleet drivers. Our subsidy program is designed to allow PestSure members to deploy the DriveCam solution at a reduced cost.”

“We are proud to have PestSure – an innovative leader in the insurance industry – as part of our client portfolio,” said Bruce Moeller, president and CEO, DriveCam. “DriveCam’s solution enables clients like PestSure to proactively protect the safety of their drivers and the communities they serve by identifying and correcting risky driving behaviors.”
