CEI to Demonstrate New Traffic Safety Camera Violation Capability at RIMS Conference

CEI will demon­strate the new traf­fic safe­ty cam­era vio­la­tion capa­bil­i­ty of its Dri­ver­Care™ online fleet safe­ty and risk man­age­ment sys­tem at the insur­ance industry’s largest trade show in Den­ver, CO, April 27 – April 30.

The new func­tion­al­i­ty was devel­oped and oper­ates in coop­er­a­tion with Amer­i­can Traf­fic Solu­tions (ATS) Fleet Ser­vices, a lead­ing provider of road fleet toll and vio­la­tion man­age­ment solu­tions.  Its capa­bil­i­ties include:

•         Auto­mat­i­cal­ly iden­ti­fy­ing and noti­fy­ing fleet dri­vers who receive traf­fic safe­ty cam­era vio­la­tions, includ­ing those for speed­ing, run­ning red lights, fail­ing to pay tolls, ille­gal park­ing and ille­gal­ly pass­ing school bus­es.

•         Enabling fleet dri­vers to review vio­la­tion doc­u­men­ta­tion, help­ing them to decide whether to con­test the cita­tion.

•         Enabling dri­vers to pay the fines through the Dri­ver­Care sys­tem via ATS.

•         Incor­po­rat­ing a record of those vio­la­tions in dri­vers’ his­to­ry files, and adjust­ing dri­vers’ risk score.

•         Auto­mat­i­cal­ly assign­ing tar­get­ed, reme­di­al dri­ver safe­ty lessons.

“This capa­bil­i­ty is the only one of its kind in the fleet indus­try,” said Bri­an Kin­niry, CEI’s direc­tor of strate­gic account ser­vices and head of the company’s safe­ty and risk man­age­ment ser­vices.  “It solves the prob­lem fleets face in most states, where traf­fic safe­ty cam­era vio­la­tions are issued to the own­er of the vehi­cle.

“That makes it very dif­fi­cult to link those vio­la­tions to the dri­ver, and if that doesn’t hap­pen, can expose fleets to greater lia­bil­i­ty for any future acci­dents those dri­vers may cause.  Now, with Dri­ver­Care, fleets can iden­ti­fy respon­si­ble dri­vers and take appro­pri­ate steps to inter­vene to help pre­vent a future acci­dent.”

CEI’s Dri­ver­Care sys­tem incor­po­rates dri­ver his­to­ry data, includ­ing acci­dent and motor vehi­cle vio­la­tion his­to­ry, assigns a risk rat­ing to each dri­ver that is updat­ed as new infor­ma­tion is received, auto­mat­i­cal­ly noti­fies dri­vers, their man­agers and fleet offi­cials when their risk rat­ings increase, and auto­mat­i­cal­ly assigns reme­di­al train­ing.  Since it was intro­duced in 2000, Dri­ver­Care has helped fleets reduce their vehi­cle acci­dents by as much as 30 per­cent, Mr. Kin­niry said.
