The City of Tallahassee’s Waste Management and Community Beautification Departments are responsible for providing garbage services, recycling services, maintaining city roads and preserving county parks. The employees drive garbage trucks, recycling trucks and small pickup trucks around the city to accomplish their job, which puts them at risk every day.
The city is testing a pilot program with Lytx DriveCam, a safety program designed to reduce unsafe driving behaviors and improve fleet performance with video-based coaching.
We served as consultants to provide a data-driven recommendation on Lytx DriveCam or an alternative system. The recommended driver safety system must be an efficient and cost-effective tool that meets all of the city’s requirements.
To perform a thorough analysis, we collected historical accident data from the city’s Department of Risk Management and from Lytx competitors. We evaluated Lytx DriveCam and compared it to competing systems, using cost and safety analysis, along with regression models to determine the best driver safety program for the city’s 130-vehicle fleet.
Based on the analyses, the Lytx system will reduce the average number of accidents and associated costs, while exceeding other customer requirements. We ultimately recommended the city purchase Lytx DriveCam, which saves the city money and increases the safety of their citizens and drivers.
