EROAD was recently featured in a FreightWaves article discussing the usefulness of ELD’s, outside of mandatory compliances needs.
EROAD’s onboarding specialist Ryan Purcell was quoted saying:
“If there’s ever an incident on the road, a company can go back and recreate exactly what happened leading up to that accident, what that truck was doing at the point of the accident and how long the truck was next to the road.
A company could let their insurance provider know their truck was not at fault. The same could be true for fatal accidents. We’ve had customers that have had fatalities in accidents and have used data from our systems in court to eventually show that the driver was not at fault.”
