Traffic Safety Audit


Although commercial vehicles account for only 5.1% of the total number of registered vehicles owned by transportation companies, they constitute about 24.3% of the total number of accidents. The number of accidents per 10,000 vehicles is also 6.7 times higher than that of non-commercial use vehicles. Due to such high ratio of traffic accidents, the commercial vehicles are subject to road safety control. Diagnose road safety practices such as driver and vehicle management for companies with history of large-scale accidents or frequent accidents to find problems and guide them improving their practices.
