Why ‘Good Enough’ Isn’t Enough: A Fleet Liability Discussion

Thursday, April 26, 2018 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Liability related to fleet-related crashes is the cause of budget-busting payouts and other less tangible headaches, such as damaged public perception. Unfortunately many fleets may not even be aware that they are just one incident away from a catastrophic liability payout — which could cost your fleet and your company millions of dollars in payouts and bad publicity.

During this free webinar, Rob Moseley, a transportation attorney with Smith Moore Leatherwood, and Chris Wolski, a long-time editor with Bobit Business Media’s fleet publications, will discuss the reasons fleets get into liability trouble and, more important, how they can avoid it. Rob and Chris will cover the many liability factors using a series of case studies highlighting:

  • Negligent hiring
  • Negligent supervision
  • Negligent retention
  • Negligent entrustment

They will also give insights into why continuous motor vehicle record (MVR) monitoring is the cornerstone of spotting risky drivers and avoiding liability altogether, which is contrary to the conventional thinking that a once-a-year MVR pull is “good enough” to identify risky drivers — it isn’t.

Discover if your fleet is staring liability in the face and how you can avoid. Register for this free webinar today!

Obstacles to Overcome Prior to a Volume Rollout of Autonomous Vehicles

By Mike Antich
I believe volume penetration of fleets by autonomous vehicles will take much longer to occur than what is predicted in today’s optimistic forecasts. Conceptually, autonomous vehicles are technologically feasible, but, as they say, the devil is in the details. One thing is certain, as we trail blaze new ground, so too will we trail blaze new problems.
