In this blog post you will learn how to create Driver Harsh Braking Reports using Velocity Fleet.
What is Harsh Braking?
Harsh Braking is when a driver uses more force than is required to stop their vehicle.
This can often be viewed as drivers being aggressive or distracted and can lead to increased maintenance costs.
What are Driver Harsh Braking Reports?
The Harsh Braking report informs fleet managers of the number of times a driver brakes harshly.
Each driver is scored out of 100 with a low score indicating more harsh braking events.
This information is obtained using the Driver Performance feature, with data presented in a summary table.
You can dive deeper into this report and view the date, time and location of each individual harsh braking event.
Further below you will find a guide to create your own driver harsh braking reports.
