Trevose, PA, Octo­ber 10, 2012 — The CEI Group, Inc. (CEI) announced today that it has added a new online mini-lesson to its Dri­ver­Care™ prod­uct line, called “Speed­ing: Fast Lane to Dis­as­ter” .    The five-minute les­son is designed to be either a sup­ple­ment or alter­na­tive to the 25-minute Dri­ver­Care les­son called, “Man­ag­ing Your Time and Speed”.

The focus of the new mini-lesson is the dan­ger and cost of speed­ing.  It uses dra­matic videos of real crashes and acci­dent sta­tis­tics to under­score that the min­i­mal amount of time saved by speed­ing isn’t worth the poten­tial cost in lives lost.

Among the lesson’s learn­ing points are:

  • The few min­utes speed­ing actu­ally saves.
  • The high per­cent­age of acci­dents in which speed­ing is a factor.
  • The num­ber of lives lost every day to speed­ing accidents.
  • How much speed­ing decreases fuel efficiency.
  • How speed­ing length­ens stop­ping distance.

The les­son requires dri­vers to pass a test to earn credit for com­ple­tion.  It is one of more than online 30 safety train­ing lessons for fleet dri­vers of all kinds of vehi­cles avail­able through CEI’s Dri­ver­Care fleet risk and safety man­age­ment products.
