Driving Dynamics Inc. announced the rollout of its CoachInsight Advantage (CoachInsight) certification course, the latest service under the company’s DriverAdvantage™ behind-the-wheel brand for individuals who operate light-to-medium duty vehicles.
CoachInsight is a four-day employer-onsite program that prepares company fleet safety professionals to conduct Driving Dynamics’ DriveInsight Advantage™ driver safety course. Coach-candidates participate in a combination of classroom lectures, role-play scenarios and driving exercises.
Driving Dynamics is showcasing its CoachInsight Advantage program at booth #157 during the 2019 iP Utility Safety Conference and Expo, April 30 through May 2 in Denton, Texas and at booth #2611 at the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) Safety 2019, June 9 through June 12 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Wheels, Inc. has integrated with two fleet logistics partners, bringing real-time data and greater workflow efficiencies directly into its Vehicle Inventory Management (VIM) application.
The VIM application orchestrates the decision matrix around moving hundreds of vehicles at a time during client upsizing, downsizing, or turnover events.
“One key benefit of this integration is that the data sourcing is in real-time,” said Erik Rasmussen, Director of Strategic Operations at PARS. “The minute the vehicle is picked up, Wheels receives that information. This is not just real-time sharing of data, this is real-time data.”
October 9-10, 2019 — Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel, Arlington, VA

Picture this scenario: It’s nearing the end of the work day and it has been a productive, but uneventful day — thank goodness — and you’re almost ready to head home for a well-earned evening of relaxation.
Just as you’re getting ready to walk out the door, you get a phone call. One of your drivers rear-ended another vehicle on his way back to the office.
Aside from the damage done to the front of his vehicle and the back of the other car’s, the vehicle he hit was occupied by a family with several small children in the backseat. Thankfully, no one suffered any serious injuries. Still, you can’t help but think of the headache that lies ahead.
As you put the fleet accident protocol into play — and prepare to brief your superiors — many questions will start to run through your mind.
Widespread support seen in Congress to explore replacing gas and diesel excise taxes; fleets encouraged to participate
By Mark Boada, Executive Editor
NAFA’s Washington, D.C. lobbyist predicts that a nationwide pilot program to replace the long-standing excise taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel with a vehicle miles traveled user fee, or VMT, will be authorized by the U.S. Congress this year.
“Reauthorizing the Federal Highway Aid Program is now at the top of the agenda,” Pat O’Connor, president of Kent & O’Connor, Inc., said in an interview with Fleet Management Weekly last week. “There’s a gap in funding for the Highway Trust Fund, and the major buzz is about a vehicle miles travel fee as the long-term solution.”

From finding fleet funding and streamlining fuel costs to grappling with vehicle utilization and maintenance, public fleets are often forced to find innovative ways to stretch thinning budgets and do more with limited resources. This is where investing in GPS technology comes in, and these are 6 of the biggest benefits public fleets can realize from the use of the right solution.
