The studies were based on a large group of British Telecom van and company car drivers, who undertook an on-line RoadRISK assessment of their attitude, hazard perception, behaviour, knowledge and personal exposure. The studies aimed to:
- identify the drivers most at risk
- compare driver assessment scores against crash outcomes
- evaluate the ability of the RoadRISK assessment to predict crash outcomes
- compare the outcomes from self-reported crash data against insurance claims.
Results shows that a relatively small group of drivers were involved in a disproportionate number of crashes. There was a clear relationship between the RoadRISK driver assessment scores and crash outcomes. However, while the RoadRISK tool has the capability to be used as a predictor of likely crash outcomes, it should not be seen as a substitute for other best practice fleet risk management processes.
