“Lytx surpassed 100 billion miles of driving data analyzed in 2018,” said Brandon Nixon, Lytx Chairman and CEO. “Our driving database is unrivaled, but what matters most about the amount of data we have is the knowledge it provides to help our clients keep their drivers and cargo safe and their fleets more productive. In fact, our data shows that our clients experienced approximately 625,000 fewer instances of risky driving in 2018 compared to 2017.”
