DRIVER VOICE ALERTS REDUCE SPEEDING

The NAS was facing problems of increased speeding in non-emergency instances. They needed to coach
their emergency service drivers to drive more responsibly, to reduce unnecessary speeding and prevent collisions.

Industry:

Emergency Service

Client:

National Ambulance Service

Location:

Republic of Ireland

Date:

Feb-March, 2015

Challenge:

Reduce unnecessary speeding on non-emergency

Solution:

ACETECH™ AVA Driver Alerts

CHALLENGE

Speed is the biggest contributing factor to road deaths in the Republic of Ireland. As part of continuous monitoring of the National Ambulance service fleet, ACETECH™ identified that there was a trend for speeding of NAS emergency vehicles, in non-emergency driving scenarios. This needed to be resolved to prevent unnecessary collisions.

SOLUTION

ACETECH™ recommended installing an in-vehicle audio voice warning system known as ACETECH™ AVA (ACETECH™ Voice Announcement). This is a safety driver coaching tool. It provides drivers with alerts when they go over 130km/h in a 120km speed zone to alert them to slow down: It assists drivers with a voice warning: “Maximum Speed Limit Exceeded”.

RESULT

ACETECH™ installed the AVA Driver Safety Module in NAS emergency service vehicles in 2015 and it produced excellent results. Comparing the emergency service vehicles that had AVA installed in 2015 (Feb-March) with the same fleet pre-installation in 2014, showed a 40% reduction in speeding offences over 130km in the 2015 fleet.

SUCCESS
A 40% REDUCTION IN SPEEDING OFFENCES.

Reduced speeding not only saves lives, it also minimises risk of claims, stops unnecessary fuel consumption and reduces fleet costs.
