    On June 1st, 2023, the new VEDR Key Indicators (KIs) will be in effect*. The goal of this change is to reduce the number of riskiest driving behaviors, which include:

    • Speeding
    • Distractions
    • Seatbelts
    • Linehaul Only: Following Distance
    • Pickup & Delivery Only: Failure to Stop/Incomplete Stop

    The VEDR Program allows up to a certain number of events for each behavior, based on the average number of active VEDR devices in your fleet for the last 30 days:Here is how the VEDR Driver-Focused KIs match up to the terminology at Lytx and how they are measured:To help drivers reduce risky driving behaviors, it is important to coach drivers in a timely manner.
