The Impact of Driver Behavior on Your Fleet's Tire Spend

On average, tires make up 19% of a fleet’s maintenance expenses, making tire spend the largest portion of maintenance costs. Did you know that you can reduce how much you spend on tires by monitoring and coaching driver behavior? In a recent analysis, we determined that a fleet of 1,000 vehicles can potentially save up to $40,000 on tires by reducing high-risk driving behavior such as harsh acceleration and deceleration events.

Driver’s Corner

According to AAA, animal-vehicle collisions begin to increase in October and peak in mid-November. During this time, it is important for drivers to be more alert and cautious at all times, but especially at dawn and dusk when many animals, particularly deer, are the most active.

In this article, AAA offers tips for avoiding animal-vehicle collisions, such as paying attention to road signs, continuously sweeping your eyes across the road for signs of animals and movement, and using high beams when there is no oncoming traffic. If an impact is imminent, it is important to use your brakes, but not swerve.
