ARLINGTON, Va., April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations and Lytx announced the renewal of their ATA Featured Product agreement. In addition, Lytx has been selected as an ATA Corporate Partner in recognition of its long-term commitment to ATA and the trucking industry.
"The trucking industry makes safety a priority in everything we do and solutions like the DriveCam program allow us to build on our safety successes by improving driver training and preventing collisions," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "When we are able to observe both safe and unsafe driving decisions using in-cab technology, we have more teachable moments that we can use to minimize risk-taking and decrease operating and insurance costs for trucking companies."
"It takes a nationwide community, led by ATA, to make our roadways safe for the drivers and their cargo who keep our economy running. At Lytx, we know coaching drivers to keep their safe driving skills sharp is a vital part of this effort," said Lytx Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Kara Kerker. "Being part of the ATA Featured Product Program and selected as an ATA Corporate Partner gives us the opportunity to share the significant advantages of our DriveCam safety program with leaders in the trucking industry, many of whom are already benefiting from the data-driven insights Lytx programs deliver to help reduce collisions and lower claims costs."
The Lytx DriveCam safety program is a comprehensive solution that combines video capture of road incidents such as hard braking or sudden swerving, data analysis of those incidents, and personalized coaching insights to improve driving behavior to help prevent those incidents. The net result is reductions of collision-related costs by up to 80 percent.
