Safety device to monitor truck drivers

Archives, Trucking Accidents

Have you heard about Green Road, a two-inch device with lights that go from green to yellow to red?  It monitors how you are driving and lets you know if you are driving recklessly.  When it first came out, it was marketed as a consumer product; however, commercial trucking companies are now looking into it.

The device uses GPS, an accelerometer and computer chip to monitor the driver’s behavior behind the wheel.  Commercial trucking companies lose too much money when there is an accident; this device should help to keep costs down.  Sounds like a good idea for truck drivers today.
