The new tool gives companies the power to manage exceptions faster than ever before, which saves time and money.

While employees still view employer-provided car schemes as a benefit, growing numbers are considering opting out of such schemes if car tax increases still further.
At the same time, tax and cost implications of selecting a new car outweigh any environmental considerations. And 78% of employees say they are unlikely to choose an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) if the tax incentives are removed.
These are some of the findings of a new study carried out on behalf of vehicle and asset finance specialist, Maxxia Group.
RoadRISK Plus is a two-part risk reduction and training program that combines a validated and research-based risk identification assessment with real-world video scenarios to test drivers' ability to spot hazards in time, and provides prescribed training content based on drivers' risk areas.
The RoadRISK Plus assessment identifies an individual's risk level by assessing multiple variables including attitudes, knowledge of defensive driving principles, behavioral attributes, travel patterns, vehicle use and personal profile.
After collecting extensive interactive driver input, RoadRISK Plus classifies drivers as either high-, medium- or low-risk.
“One-hundred deaths every day should outrage us. Why are we O.K. with this? Complacency is killing us.”
By Art Liggio, President, Driving Dynamics
According to a recent report by the National Safety Council, for the first time in 10 years there were more than 40,000 traffic fatalities in the United States. This 2016 statistic represents a 6 percent increase over 2015 and sadly, 2015’s increase in fatalities was 7.2 percent above 2014. Another sobering fact related to 2015 is that the increase that year was the largest percentage increase in nearly 50 years.
Many articles seem to suggest that a contributing factor to this upward trend is that Americans are driving more than in previous years. On the surface this seems logical, however, when you look at further analyses compiled by NHTSA, which includes the equalizing measurement of fatality crashes per million miles, the story does not get any better.
For eight years, the message from Washington to automakers has been clear: Build greener cars. Today, the message changed.
President Trump announced, in a meeting with automakers in Detroit, that he wants the EPA to review its tailpipe emissions standards for model years 2022 through 2025, standards the Obama administration attempted to make permanent just before Trump’s inauguration in January.
But all is not lost. An EPA review of those rules will take months, and changing them will require providing robust evidence that the Obama-era regulation will adversely effect automakers and the US economy, and that reversing it will not adversely effect the environment.
Excellent news for the gas-sipping, headlight-blinking, gossipy autos among us.
Cadillac’s flagship 2017 CTS sedan will talk to other cars. Well, other 2017 Cadillac CTS sedans, but it’s a start. If the government gets its way, all cars will talk to each other one day soon.
Engineers call the technology vehicle to vehicle communication. General Motors and Uncle Sam call it the future of automotive safety in a country where more than 32,000 people died in collisions last year.
