Ridgeland, MS – January 15, 2013 – LeFleur Transportation a leader in non-emergency medical transportation, today announced that 146 of its fleet drivers have been selected as 2012 members of the GreenRoad Fleet Elite™ program, recognizing them as some of the best fleet drivers on the road. Fleet Elite status is awarded to GreenRoad drivers who maintain a GreenRoad Safety Score of 5 or less for the full 2012 calendar year. In 2012, fewer than 5% of drivers in the GreenRoad global driver base attained Fleet Elite status.
“We are extremely proud of our Fleet Elite drivers,” said John Kubala, Director of Safety. “By consistently applying the GreenRoad principles, these drivers have achieved Fleet Elite status and made the road a safer, greener place. With every mile, they have reduced CO2 emissions, avoided crashes, and even extended the lives of vehicles. On the behalf of everyone at LeFleur Transportation we extend our thanks and congratulations to these excellent drivers.”
GreenRoad is a unique, technology-based driver performance management service that provides drivers with real-time, in-vehicle feedback every second the vehicle is in motion. At the start of every trip, a driver starts out “Green.” If a risky maneuver occurs, such as hard braking or rapid acceleration, the GreenRoad display flashes a yellow or red light, depending on the severity of the event. These risky events are tabulated to create a GreenRoad Safety Score.
A GreenRoad Safety Score is a rolling average of the last ten driving hours. GreenRoad considers a Safety Score of 20 or below as an indication of safe or “Green” driving. Scores between 21 and 50 indicate moderately risky driving. Any driver with a score over 50 is considered a risky driver.
Safety events are broken into five major categories: Braking, Acceleration, Corner Handling, Lane Handling and Speeding. Driver behavior is measured using a sophisticated combination of a sensitive accelerometer, GPS data and advanced algorithms.
