How to solve road traffic injuries?
According to the world health organization news, Every year the lives of approximately 1.35 million people are cut short as a result of a road traffic crash. Between 20 and 50 million more people suffer non-fatal injuries, with many incurring a disability as a result of their injury.
- Approximately 1.35 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes.
- The2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has set an ambitious target of halving the global number of deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by 2020.
- Road traffic crashes cost most countries 3% of their gross domestic product.
- More than half of all road traffic deaths are among vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists.
- 93% of the world's fatalities on the roads occur in low- and middle-income countries, even though these countries have approximately 60% of the world's vehicles.
- Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5-29 years. ( Data source World Health Organization press release)
How to solve road traffic injuries?
1. Reduce Speeding and Unsafe Driving
According to the World Health organization, speed contributes to approximately 30% of deaths on the road in high-income countries. Unfortunately, the fatality rate for passenger vehicle occupants is even higher when they collide with heavy vehicles, such as trucks and buses weigh 20-30 times as much as a passenger car. With telematics, drivers can gain greater insight into their driving performance to reduce any risky behavior, such as speeding, harsh braking, and sharp acceleration. Managers and supervisors of a fleet can also access this information and coach drivers to engage in safer driving behaviors to reduce the chances of collisions and traffic violations.
2. Manage Vehicle Safety
Managing a well-maintained fleet is key when it comes to boosting fleet safety. An NHTSA study found that 20% of traffic accidents are a result of poor or total lack of maintenance. Despite increased regulation in the upkeep of heavy vehicles, maintenance remains a major factor in accidents.
3. Provide Visibility Fleet-Wide
Having visibility across your fleet is essential to assess, evaluate, and control risks. Lack of visibility can create a host of problems, from reduced productivity to fleet inefficiencies and shipment delays. Higher fleet visibility also comes in handy when gathering logistics data, as shippers today expect carriers to provide accurate data that can lead to better overall customer experience.
Overall, telematics gives everyone in the organization the ability to make better-informed decisions, based on high-quality data. It allows managers to implement condition-based maintenance and provides visibility across the fleet, helping upper management gain a clearer understanding of the organization’s overall operations.
