lane departure warnings and speeding, providing opportunities to not
only improve safety, but also KPIs like mpg. Currently, approximately
51 percent of Ruan’s fleet has a collision mitigation system installed,
Lisa Gonnerman, vice president of safety, says overall, the safety
results they have experienced for the trucks with the collision miti-
gation systems have exceeded expectations. “In our experience, units
equipped with a collision safety system have fewer rear-end, merging
and lane change accidents than those not equipped with the systems,”
Dashboard video cameras provide the ability to view and record
real-time driver performance. Onboard video event recorder systems link into a truck’s electronic logging device (ELD) and advanced
driver safety systems to record video clips before and after exception-based events such as speeding, forward collision warnings, harsh braking, lane departure alerts and collisions. Those recorders may then be
accessed for litigation in the case of an accident or for driver coaching.
Additionally, dashboard cameras allow fleets to proactively identify
drivers who exhibit risky driving behaviors. Gonnerman says by coaching drivers to eliminate those behaviors, they are less likely to have
accidents. Ruan is currently testing 100 road- and driver-facing dash
cameras with a large retail customer, and to date they have seen great
results, particularly in correcting driver behaviors.
Electronic logging devices (ELDs) ensure regulatory compliance with hours-of-service rules. Drivers avoid manual logs, instead
