Motor Vehicle Safety

June-August 2009

7,196,190 miles

55 Total Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA’s)

17 At fault MVA’s

Total MVA rate per 100,000 miles: 0.76

At Fault rate per 100,000 miles: 0.24

June-August 2010

6,795,656 miles

55 Total Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA’s)

25 At fault MVA’s

Total MVA rate per 100,000 miles: 0.81

At Fault rate per 100,000 miles: 0.37

2009 vs. 2010

6% INCREASE in Total MVA’s

35% INCREASE in At-fault MVA Rate

We need to remember that At-Fault MVA’s are preventable when the 5 keys of the Smith System are applied and we are driving defensively.

How to prevent MVA’s…

  • Maintain a 4 second space cushion
    • Increase space cushion 2 seconds for each additional hazard (rain, fog, or heavy traffic)
  • Be aware at intersections
    • Look before proceeding
    • Stopping distance (don’t ride their bumper)
    • Give vehicle in front a head start
  • Avoid driving distractions

Hazards / Items to look for..

Summer Driving Watch for…

  • Motorcycles, scooters, bicycles- check your rear view mirrors periodically. They are easy to miss in your blind spots. Remember to utilize Smith Driving Techniques and Scan the road
  • Be sure to check your wiper blades, tires, lights, and mirrors. Poor maintenance could lead to an accident
  • Contact GE Fleet to get all chipped windshields repaired in a timely fashion.
  • Proper tire inflation improves mileage and saves gas
  • Don’t carry unnecessary parts in your service van. It increases weight and reduces mileage
  • To improve gas mileage, decrease your rapid acceleration and braking. This will provide the necessary cushion we learn about in Smith driving as well conserve gas.
