Bowling Green Begins Trial Agreement with DriveCam

city bowlingBOWLING GREEN, Ky (6/7/13) -- The City of Bowling Green has entered into a no-cost trial agreement with DriveCam, Inc. to study the feasibility of deploying a driver risk management program. The program is intended to improve driver safety and prevent collisions and injuries, which helps protect the City's drivers and citizens.

The program consists of a video event recorder. A sensor is placed on the vehicle's windshield. The sensor will continually record but doesn't save data unless triggered by an unusual driving event such as hard breaking, swerving, speeding or a collision. When triggered, the sensor captures 12 seconds of video inside and outside the vehicle as well as audio. On average, less than two minutes of video per driver, per month is recorded.

Video is then uploaded to DriveCam's review center where trained professionals analyze the event for City management to use in coaching drivers and improving driver safety. This can help improve driver safety at a no-cost level.

The trial will use 15 city vehicles in the Public Works, Police and Risk Management Departments. It will begin in early June and last 120 days. The effectiveness of the program will be evaluated at the end.
