This morning, when Wil just finished parking in his company’s garage, another colleague accidentally hit his car’s fender, as he came out from the car. “What a bummer,” he thinks.
According to research conducted by PHH Arval Research, parking lots accidents are the most common cause of fleet vehicle damages.
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) indicates that 20% of all vehicle accidents happen in parking lots. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that “267 people are killed and 15,000 injured each year by drivers who back into them, usually in the driveways or parking lots.”
As a result, reverse parking is said to be the solution for these kinds of accidents. Moreover, it can be monitored with telematics, so it improves a lot of safety for the drivers.
By reverse parking, you avoid backing out blindly into ongoing traffic or into the path of pedestrians.
You could even use Telematics to monitor it. With a management software, you could set up a safety rule for backing up when leaving the parking lot. It will also show the patterns of the reverse parking, and guide the drivers to park safely.
So, if Wil doesn’t do the reverse parking the way he usually does, the system will send out the messages to notify him. That really solves the problems.
Parksen is a platform that would like to work with smart software companies like this, because we believe in a universal smart platform that integrates smart functions that would benefit the drivers. Join us for the parking revolution with us and let’s build a smart platform good for the drivers!
