Annett goes the extra mile to ensure passenger safety
Annett Used the Lytx Driver Safety Programme to Help Reduce Distracted Driving and Traffic Violations
As one of the most respected family-owned motor coach companies in North America, Annett Bus Lines has a reputation for quality, reliability, and safety. And co-owner David Annett never takes that for granted. With more than forty-five motor coaches across multiple states, knowing where its vehicles are and exactly what’s happening on the road is critical to protecting the company and its passengers and drivers.
The DriveCam Difference
Annett implemented the Lytx® Driver Safety Programme to improve fleet accountability, reduce risky driving behaviours, and increase visibility into how drivers perform when incidents occur. With DriveCam® video clips, Annett is able to identify the causes of driving incidents and coach drivers who demonstrated risky driving behaviour. The Driver Safety Programme helped provide the company with the comfort that comes with knowing the truth. Annett drivers view DriveCam event recorders as driving companions that help keep them and their passengers safe. And when they do everything right, they now have video to help prove it.
"I actually feel the [Driver Safety] program helps me sleep better at night, because if something happens, I'll know exactly what occurred. The video speaks for itself."
