Benefits

Overview
When our customers spend the time to assess the cost of our program relative to the expected benefits, the decision to implement howamidriving.com’s services really is a “no brainer”. If you look at this decision in its simplest form, The National Safety Council estimates that the average cost of an accident is $11,636. This includes property damage, lost labor time, workers compensation, non-employee injury/damage, etc. So if you can simply avoid one accident with our program, most of our clients programs will have paid for themselves and then some. But we are confident that our program provides significantly more tangible and intangible benefits than avoiding one accident. And more importantly, these benefits are not just to you but also to your drivers, your customers and society in general.

Benefits of Using a 3rd Party
A Public Reporting Model (PRM) is a program where companies rely on the public to report situations that require improvement or actions. howamidriving.com’s program is a PRM in that we provide decals on vehicles and present an opportunity for the public to call and report safety concerns.
On the road you will see transportation companies with a “How am I driving?” decal with their own internal 800 number. Why wouldn’t you just do that? There is a distinct advantage in using a 3rd party to record and report traffic incidents. First, it is typically more cost-effective to use homaidriving.com. Second, there are distinct advantages in using an objective 3rd party. Just as you would not perform employee drug testing yourself, you would want an independent and object party to administer the information captured from the Public Reporting Model (PRM). By using a 3rd party, you are not exposed to claims of bias or discrimination. Also, if calls need to be verified, howamidriving.com will follow up with the caller to verify the authenticity and accuracy of the original call.

Benefits

Reduction in Number of Accidents
  • Numerous studies have shown that there is a direct correlation between the number of calls a driver receives and the potential for that driver to be involved in an accident. An industry axiom is that if a driver has 4 or more calls a year he/she has a greater than 100% chance of being in an accident. With this information, it is quite clear to our clients which drivers are the highest risk and where they need to focus their “pre-emptive” actions (Your results will vary).
  • Companies using a PRM model have reported greater than 30% reduction in accidents the first year of implementing a PRM program and returns on investment up to 2,000% (Your results will vary).
  • A survey of drivers whose companies utilized a PRM program showed that over 90% of the drivers stated that they are more conscientious of driving safely because of the decal being on their vehicle.
Reduction in Insurance Premiums
  • As you negotiate premiums with your insurance carriers, having a PRM program in place provides you significant leverage. It is proven that PRM programs significantly reduce the loss ratio for insurance carriers.
  • Insurance companies have reported that loss ratios have been reduced by as much as 45% due to PRM (Your results will vary).
  • If you are self-insured, you will experience the same benefit of a reduction in losses due to accidents. Also, by identifying the high risk drivers, you will lower the probability of recurring incidents and also the risk of higher loss events.
Increased Level of Customer Service
  • By implementing the howamidriving.com program, you are telling your customers that you are committed to safety. They see the decals on your vehicles; this tells them that safety is a priority for you. They know that this commitment to safety benefits society as a whole and can also reduce overall costs and in turn pricing for them.
  • Our clients typically show the howamidriving.com “brand” through various channels: vehicles, website, advertising, events, etc. They are proud to be associated with our brand and want to communicate this commitment to safety to their customers.
  • By accepting compliments from the public or your clients, we are able to reinforce positive behaviors by your drivers. This positive reinforcement will encourage continued positive actions by your drivers.
Reduction in Fuel Costs
  • The #1 concern in the transportation space today is the cost of gasoline and diesel fuel. It is proven that drivers that drive less erratically, accelerate and decelerate smoother, and do not speed excessively, will get better gas or fuel mileage. This is another important by-product of safer driving from which your company can benefit.
Positive Contribution to Society
  • Your emphasis on safety benefits not only your key constituents (i.e. drivers, customers, insurers), but also society as a whole. Society directly and indirectly bears the cost of accidents; directly through injuries and property damages and indirectly through additional costs of goods and services. By reducing the number of accidents, you are reducing this burden to the general public.
  • A study by the National Safety Council shows that 33% of the accidents by transportation companies have non-employee bodily injury or property damage. By reducing accidents through the howamidriving.com program, your company will lessen this negative impact on society.
