Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
Today Drivefleet, a leading online provider of fleet driver safety education, announced that it has formed a partnership with the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago in order to make an affordable, easy-to-implement driver training program available to all Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago members.
“Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of occupational fatality and cost business vehicle owners more than $61 billion each year,” said Rich Radi, CEO of Drivefleet. “A single crash involving a company driver can be catastrophic to an organization and, more importantly, cost lives. We applaud the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago for recognizing the importance and value of this life-saving training program.”
In addition to the safety aspects, home builders can reduce fuel, repair and insurance costs by ensuring drivers of their vehicles are proactive drivers. Aggressive drivers use up to 33% more fuel than safe, proactive drivers. Drivefleet’s online driver training program is designed to help commercial vehicle drivers be both more safety-conscious and more cost-conscious.
“We are proud to bring this excellent program to our members,” said Rita Unzner, Executive Director of the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago. “It’s a great opportunity for our members to improve safety while lowering costs at the same time.”
Drivefleet’s driver training courses, which retail for just $24.50 per course, are all web-based so drivers can access them anytime, anywhere, from any internet connected computer. Associations like the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago, as well as for-profit companies, government organizations and colleges/universities and can use Drivefleet to train new hire drivers and well as to provide a refresher to experienced drivers.
Drivefleet is a leading provider of online driver training programs for commercial fleets and anyone who drives on behalf of an organization. We offer a full complement of courses from defensive driving to distracted driving to eco-driving and more. Drivefleet’s courses truly engage students through interactive exercises and activities to make the learning experience more enriching. Better learning makes better drivers.
