Many a time, vehicle owners and fleet managers think that because they have a tracking device, then it means they can manage and control the way the vehicle operates. This is fatal assumption that has crippled many fleets.
The whole essence of fleet management is to control costs, mitigate risks and improve profitability with regards to the use of private commercial vehicles. In doing this, certain devices must be put in place to help in the fleet management.
Notable amongst them are tracking devices and speed governors. Each of these devices has their own role to play in the fleet management function. The problem is that some fleet managers think that since they have a tracking device, there’s no need for a speed governor.
That is far from the truth.
Tracking devices don’t control vehicle speed. It is noted that one of the major causes of accidents is over speeding and reckless driving. In view of this, many countries have made it mandatory for private and commercial vehicles to have proper speed governors so as to manage vehicle speed.
Tracking devices may help determine the time used to cover a distance. But they may not directly tell whether the drive was over speeding or not. However, speed governors have signaling system that notifies drivers when they reach their speed limit so as to manage their speed levels.
Your tracking device may help track and monitor your vehicle, but when the driver over speeds, you may not know. When it results in accidents or any fatal condition, you have yourself to blame. This is the main reason why it is necessary to have all the devices set up to manage your fleets so that you can ensure safety of the vehicle and driver in the long term.
