The DriveCam Difference

WCA Waste wanted to find a tool that allowed the company to get a big-picture view of how its fleet was performing out on the road, and to change unsafe driving behaviors.

At first, some drivers were uneasy with the DriveCam® safety program, but as time went on, those same drivers expressed gratitude in the fact that the program changed their driving behaviors for the better.

With nearly 100% of the fleet using the DriveCam program, WCA Waste saw an overall decrease in collisions, and a decrease in the severity of collisions across the board. One team went collision- and injury-free for an entire year.

When there was a collision, the company was able to better understand what led up to that event, and coach driving behaviors using a method that allowed the drivers to self critique the incident. The video clips also helped exonerate some drivers after incidents.
