The average fleet driver drives 20,000 to 25,000 miles on the road annually. That’s up to 10,000 to 15,000 miles more than the average driver in the United States. As a result, the likelihood of accidents are higher, which puts your drivers at risk. With lives at stake, and possible lawsuits, safety should be the number one priority of Fleet Managers.
