MV Transportation is expanding its use of Lytx's video-based safety program to more than 1,500 vehicles. The new deployment covers MV's support for King County Metro in Washington, Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, and Capital Metro in Austin, Texas, and brings the total number of Lytx-protected vehicles in MV's fleet to more than 8,000 — one of the largest public transportation deployments.
The dramatic transformation of MV’s safety performance since adopting the Lytx® Driver Safety Program was a key factor in the company’s decision to grow their relationship with Lytx, according to a press release from Lytx.
Dallas-based MV initially deployed with Lytx in 2005 to address the risks and challenges inherent in operating a diverse fleet through both urban and rural environments. Using the Lytx Driver Safety Program since 2012 to better understand its risk and cultivate a proactive approach to improving safety, MV has achieved the following results:
- 78% reduction in drivers illegally proceeding through red lights and stop signs.
- 71% reduction in overall frequency of events.
- 69% reduction in late responses.
- 67% reduction in overall severity of events.
- 64% reduction in other distractions.
The Lytx Driver Safety Program is a comprehensive fleet safety management system, which offers professional event review, thorough reporting and video-based coaching that can be used to address and improve risky driving behaviors.
