  1. Driver Unbelted – 28%
  2. Following Distance Under 2 Seconds – 26%
  3. Posted Speed Violation – 9%
  4. Failed to Stop – 8%
  5. Incomplete Stop – 7%

“Seat belt use continues to stand out as both a top behavior fleets are actively looking to address and one that drivers continue to struggle with, despite the inherent dangers and risk of policy violations and citations,” said Del Lisk, Lytx’s vice president of safety services. “Drivers cited for not wearing a seat belt are 3.4% more likely to get into a collision, and remains a priority for nearly every driver and fleet. Because of this, seat belt use is one of eight behaviors we proactively issue in-cab alerts for, helping drivers to self-correct in real time.”

Lytx says the MV+AI triggers in-cab alerts to help drivers recognize their own risky driving habits and self-correct in the moment. For events that require additional coaching or drivers who may require further attention, Lytx also offers a prescriptive coaching solution for driver self-coaching.
