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:
- 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. Here are some resources to help you get started on coaching these new KIs:
Seatbelts: Coaching Common Behaviors: Driver Unbelted
Following distance: Coaching Common Behaviors: Following Distance
Failure to Stop/Incomplete Stop: Coaching Common Behaviors: Failed to Stop / Incomplete Stops
* All Linehaul TPSs (Transportation Service Providers) and Canadian Pickup and Delivery ISP’s (Independent Service Providers). All other Pickup and Delivery ISP’s will be notified via MyGoundBiz or terminal management.
