Queens, NY (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Increasing awareness of unsafe driving habits has forced law makers to implement harsher penalties for those who do not comply with new distracted driving laws. These laws have made it a necessity for fleet owners to take preventative measures to ensure compliance within their companies. Dell Transportation, a school bus fleet located in Port Washington, N.Y. has equipped their drivers with the Dual-Vision™ Continuous Video and Automotive Event Recorder. Studies have shown that automotive event recorders are proven to reduce accident rates by 27% in fleets.
Dell began using the Dual-Vision™ two years ago for accident prevention and student management security; today 100% of their 145 school bus fleet is equipped with the AER device with all vehicles operate daily. Part of the fleet was recently upgraded with the new Dual-Vision™ XC 2+1 with third camera capability for increased visibility. The new third camera option is ideal for the Type “C” and Type “D” school buses where cameras have often had difficulty capturing images of the deep interiors of the school bus.
Dell Transportation has been "Proudly Transporting Long Island’s Most Precious Cargo Since 1956," and they are continually finding new technologies for optimal safety for both the driver and the students they transport.
Principal of Transportation at Dell Bob Pape says, "Our insurance premiums have gone down and our insurance company underwrites nearly 100% of the Dual-Vision™ devices. Our drivers love having the Dual-Vision™ in their buses and it makes them more aware of their environment and gets them to slow down. The device also exonerates them from false accusations and improves the safety for both the children and drivers alike."
The Dual-Vision™ XC is Rosco’s signature line of continuous automotive event recorders (AER) and is engineered to elevate fleet safety. The XC devices capture interior and exterior footage, supply GPS information, and offer instantaneous feedback to drivers. Choose the best Dual-Vision™ high capacity recording system for your fleet requirements. This sleek device is easily positioned on the interior windshield with minimal visual obstruction. It records audio and video in a 310° range and shares alerts with drivers in real time, such as when speed limits are surpassed. A continuous recording system for commercial vehicles allows fleet managers to monitor dangerous driving habits as well as safe driving practices. It serves as a crucial training tool for both fleet managers and drivers. Dual-Vision™ AER models provide the digital footage that companies require, with as many as 160 recording hours available. They also assist commercial drivers in following federal laws regarding distracted driving and hand-held devices. Failure-to-comply fines negatively impact drivers and businesses, with potential fees in the thousands of dollars.
