End of Daylight Saving Time Means Beginning of Roadway Dangers

End of Daylight Saving Time Means Beginning of Roadway Dangers

What comes to mind when you think about the end of Daylight Saving Time? If you’re like most small business owners, it’s probably that extra hour of sleep that you get to enjoy, and the fact that—at least for a few weeks—you’re not starting your day before the sun rises. There is, however, a “darker” side to the end of Daylight Saving Time that could put your drivers at risk. With darkness coming earlier and earlier during your business day, the roadways will become more dangerous for your fleet drivers.   

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), traffic fatalities are three times greater at night than during the day. Darker roads mean less visibility, which can increase the risk for vehicle accidents. And since darkness signals a natural inclination for sleep, early nightfall can lead to more instances of drowsy driving. 

So how can GPS fleet tracking solutions help small businesses improve driver safety all around? GPS fleet tracking technology provides owners and fleet managers with true insight into driver behavior, without them sitting in the passenger seat. 
With a GPS fleet tracking solution, you’re able to monitor driver behavior patterns such as speeding, aggressive driving and distracted driving. If your drivers exceed the posted speed limit, you will receive an instant alert to your email notifying you of this behavior. Is aggressive driving a problem in your fleet? With automated reports, you can monitor actions such as harsh braking, sharp turns, cornering, etc. This allows you to pinpoint which of your drivers practice safe habits and which need more training.

Here are some other things you can do to improve driver safety, especially during the evening hours: 

  • Make sure to prepare your vehicles for night driving. Clean your headlights, taillights, signal lights and windows at least once a week.
  • Talk to drivers about reduce their speed and increasing their following distances, as it becomes harder to determine other vehicle’s speeds and distances at night.
  • When longer trips are involved that include nighttime driving, it’s important to make sure your drivers are making frequent stops for light snacks and exercise to reduce drowsy driving.
  • In the event of a breakdown, encourage drivers to pull off the roadway as far as possible, as visibility will be limited for other motorists.

Your drivers and your vehicles are your business’ the most important assets. By monitoring driver behavior with your GPS fleet tracking solution, you can make sure they stay safe around the clock and year-round.
