A Revolution in Real-time In-cab Safety Alerts, Sponsored by Drivewyze
For the first time, real-time warnings about dangerous traffic slowdowns, unexpected service vehicles on the roadside, and cautions about steep grades and unsafe routes are being displayed to commercial truck drivers on their in-cab telematics devices – at no cost to drivers or carriers – thanks to investments and collaboration from state agencies, telematics hardware providers and safety technology leaders. Drivewyze Free, launched in January 2024, delivers an essential mix of Agency-sponsored and Drivewyze-sponsored safety alerts to drivers to help them avoid incidents before they happen, and it is being broadly offered to drivers and fleets of all sizes, at no cost.
To shed more light on this revolutionary technology, ATA and Drivewyze are convening a special panel that will be moderated by Rob Abbott, VP of Customer Success, Drivewyze. This session will cover:
- Key benefits of Drivewyze Free
- Why State Agencies have chosen to sponsor Drivewyze Free
- How safety technology is helping fleets and drivers avoid incidents
