The claim that taxi driving is one of the most dangerous professions in the world was not made as a joke. If you drive taxis for a living, you are basically exposed to every kind of person in the society—upright citizens, burglars, ex-cons, thieves, company executives, students, serial killers, prostitutes, runaways and basically anyone who finds the need to hail a cab. The problem is, all these kinds of people are passengers. And you normally have no way of determining who is which until he or she is riding in your cab already. The gentleman in the suit may turn out to be a professional cab hijacker for all you know. This safety problem is exactly what vehicle tracking systems
seek to address.
If you are an employer or owner of a fleet company (taxi, delivery van, public bus, armored truck, etc.), then you should be using vehicle tracking systems in your busines. The current tracking system in the industry is carried out using Global Positioning System or GPS, where satellites can determine the whereabouts of your vehicles at any given time. However, not all employers are thrilled to be welcoming thisÂ new technological advancements. These employers insist that they have been running things without any type of technological tracking for years, and they haven't come across one single problem. Most of all, these employers insiste that they trust their drivers.
Using vehicle tracking systems
in the fleet industry is not a matter of trust between staff and employer. The aim of this system is to improve the performance of your drivers and boost the efficiency of your service. For instance, one of your drivers end up in a an unfamiliar territory and is unable to find a way back to the familiar grounds. A GPS can provide navigation that will instantly show your drivers where they need to go. Needless to say, this will save the company a lot of fuel money and driving time.
Promoting driver safety
Vehicle tracking systems also aim to ensure the safety of your drivers. As mentione above, there is a plenty of peril that your driver can come across with while he is on the road. Most GPS systems have panic buttons that the driver simply clicks in times of danger. GPS can also come in handy in the event that the taxi breaks down in the middle of nowhere and your driver is unsure about the directions.
