Lytx DriveCam™ safety program
Truck fleets across the nation have been seeking new technologies to increase safety and reduce accidents. In-cab video systems are an increasingly popular way to improve not only safety, but also security and driver training. Hirschbach recently took another large step in their journey to further reduce accidents by incorporating the Lytx DriveCam™ safety program into their fleet.
For a year and a half, Hirschbach actively tested the latest in video systems to determine which technology would be best for the fleet. After careful consideration, Hirschbach collaborated with Lytx®. According to Brian Kohlwes, Chief General Counsel and Vice President of Safety at Hirschbach, “Lytx is much more than just a video telematics company. They are a true partner in helping Hirschbach reduce accidents.” Since 1998, Lytx has grown to help protect 1,500 clients, more than 650,000 drivers, and countless communities through its safety programs and services.
The Lytx DriveCam program is unique compared to others on the market. The Lytx DriveCam event recorder mounts to the center of the windshield of the tractor. The recorder captures short bursts of video clips when there are safety events such as a hard braking event, sudden stop, roll stability event, etc. The driver can also activate the recorder manually by pressing a button on the event recorder.
In regards to the Lytx DriveCam program, Brian Kohlwes went on to say, “The technology will help Hirschbach in becoming a best-in-class carrier in safety. Also, in the event of an accident that was not our driver’s fault, the DriveCam video can help exonerate our drivers and us. We will be right with the safest carriers in the country by utilizing this technology. This technology will ultimately help us save lives.”
“Hirschbach has adopted the gold standard in video telematics safety programs with their DriveCam deployment, which is a signal to their clients, their drivers and the people with whom they share the road that safety is a top value,” said Del Lisk, Lytx Vice President of Safety Services.
