How To: Create Driver Harsh Acceleration Reports

In this blog post you will learn how to create Driver Harsh Acceleration Reports using Velocity Fleet.

What is Harsh Acceleration?

Harsh acceleration is when a driver uses more power than required when moving away from a dead stop.

This can be viewed as aggressive driving and can lead to increased tire wear, plus other costly maintenance issues.

What are Driver Harsh Acceleration Reports?

Harsh Acceleration reports inform Fleet Managers of the number of times a driver has accelerated harshly.

Drivers are scored out of 100 with a lower score indicating more harsh acceleration events.

This information is obtainable using the Standard Reports feature, with the data presented in a summary table.

Fleet Managers can choose to view the events, which provides the location, date and time of each individual harsh acceleration event.

What is Velocity Fleet?

Velocity Fleet is an online account management system that is used to manage your Fuel Cards, GPS Vehicle Tracking, Vehicle Cameras and Vehicle Checks.

This platform is available on all web and mobile devices, enabling you to manage your fleet anywhere, anytime.
