Podcast: The importance of road safety

Published on May 20, 2021 in Driver Safety by Inshaal Badar


Season two of Connected with Geotab continues with discussions from industry experts.

Over 1.4 million lives are lost on the road every year. Traffic fatalities in the U.S. have increased over the past 12 months, despite a decrease in the amount of vehicles on the road.

In this episode of Connected with Geotab, Colin Sutherland interviews David Braunstein, President of Together for Safer Roads (TSR). Braunstein discusses the importance of road safety, different ways that fleets and drivers can reduce speed-related incidents, and the importance of the Road Safety Week, and the Vision Zero Technology Fund, which helps equip essential non-profit fleets with safety technology.
