Down East Energy Avoids Costly Fleet Accident, Thanks to Newly Installed Safety Technology from Reverse Backing Systems

Share Article

Recently installed technology from Reverse Backing Systems saved a fleet driver from a potentially terrible accident. More companies are choosing to purchase this safety equipment for their fleets, finding it an economical and wise decision.

Just one week after Reverse Backing Systems (RBS) installed collision avoidance products on Down East Energy and Building Supply vehicles, a fleet driver was saved from what could have been a very costly accident. The Down East truck was on the verge of backing into a basketball system, which would have caused the heavy goal to topple over onto a nearby car. Thankfully, the fleet driver was alerted by the newly installed technology from Reverse Backing Systems, so nothing was damaged and no one was hurt.

The incident confirmed the wisdom of Down East’s investment in 320 of the ETA-S Commercial Truck Systems for their propane trucks and fleet maintenance vehicles. RBS representatives are pleased to see the product prove its worth. “It is very satisfying that our product has already saved Down East significant money; they have already saved twenty percent of the entire cost of all 320 systems!” says Jared Jolly, President and CEO of Reverse Backing Systems. “There is no doubt that equipping your fleet with collision avoidance products makes economic sense.”

In addition to preventing expensive property damages, safety technology from Reverse Backing Systems is effective at reducing the occurrence of other potential repercussions of crashes — such as physical harm or death, loss of productivity and potential third-party liability claims.

Each year in the US there are over 300,000 reported reversing accidents, which account for more than 400 deaths annually and cost drivers in excess of 1.3 billion dollars in damages. Since fleet drivers are on the road much more than typical drivers (who have a 1 in 15 chance of being involved in a collision each year), their chances of being in an accident are higher.

Reverse Backing Systems is the only supplier in the US boasting the concept and design of a parking sensor system made specifically with the commercial vehicle in mind. Included in the price of their systems, RBS sends an installation technician to spend a full day training installers to equip vehicles with the products. Companies like Down East, Georgia Power and El Paso Corporate are discovering that doing business with Reverse Backing Systems makes sense for the safety and success of their fleets.

Reverse Backing Systems is a manufacturer of collision avoidance products, including backup sensors and cameras. High quality products designed at RBS are marketed to distributors and retailers throughout the United States. Motivated by the goal to become the United States’ premier supplier of collision avoidance products, concentrating on backup safety systems, RBS develops exclusive products such as truck backup sensor systems and commercial truck parking sensors.
