    The safety data bucket issue - Fleet Owner

    “Every fleet wants event data because that’s what’s going to tell you what really happened if a crash occurs – especially if that data can help exonerate both driver and fleet,”.

    Now, a lot of motor carriers and drivers also rightly worry about such “event data” solidly affixing the blame for truck-car collisions on their shoulders, but in actuality, the fault for such crashes lies solidly with car drivers.

    Indeed, a study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that car drivers are the ones at fault for triggering truck-car crashes about 75% of the time.
