One in four British businesses use telematics to monitor driver behaviour
The Lex Autolease Report on Company Motoring surveyed over 250 British employers who offer company cars to their employees and analysed the use and benefit of company cars in the workforce.
Tim Porter, managing director of Lex Autolease, said: ‘We are likely to see an increase in usage of telematics as organisations will find this information useful and be able to provide appropriate guidance on driver safety and behaviour to their employees. It also has the potential to reduce insurance premiums for those employers whose drivers do drive safely.’
In a separate survey conducted for Lex Autolease, which contacted over 500 employees who are in possession of a company car, four in ten (43%) employees said they were happy with having driver monitoring equipment installed in their car and a near equal number of drivers (44%) said they would be happy to have some sort of camera installed in their vehicle.
