Verizon Connect offers Integrated Video product to help fleet managers improve safety

A new survey commissioned by Verizon Connect and Wakefield Research has identified misperceptions everyday drivers have about the level of danger posed by commercial drivers, including the finding that 83% of those surveyed believe they pose less risk on the road than commercial drivers. In actuality, only 3% of all severe crashes in the U.S. involve commercial vehicles, Verizon Connect says.

A new survey commissioned by Verizon Connect and Wakefield Research has identified misperceptions everyday drivers have about the level of danger posed by commercial drivers, including the finding that 83% of those surveyed believe they pose less risk on the road than commercial drivers. In actuality, only 3% of all severe crashes in the U.S. involve commercial vehicles, Verizon Connect says.

To help combat this misperception, Verizon Connect offers fleet-based businesses its Verizon Connect Integrated Video product to help fleet managers improve safety and mitigate risk within their fleet of vehicles.

Verizon Connect Integrated Video leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to help businesses improve driver behavior and protect the bottom-line, the company says. Verizon Connect Integrated Video is a smart dash-cam solution that provides real data insights to help commercial drivers stay safe on the road and protect them against false claims in the event of any incident.

Eighty-one percent of respondents said they have witnessed a commercial vehicle driving dangerously. Fifty-four percent of those respondents also say they have witnessed an accident involving a commercial vehicle.

Other unsafe driving behaviors from commercial vehicles witnessed by survey respondents include:

  • Speeding – 69%
  • Abrupt lane changes – 55%
  • Driving erratically – 46%
  • Taking turns too quickly – 37%

Verizon Connect Integrated Video uses AI to intelligently capture and automatically classify video according to how severe an event is, showing only what is relevant to business owners and operations managers, the company says. Additional features include Speed Overlay, which enables operations managers to view the speed of the vehicle directly within the video clip to determine if speed is the factor that caused the event, and Video on Demand, which allows operations managers to request 40-second increments of available footage.
