GreenRoad Safety Score Background
GreenRoad’s unique, technology-based driver performance management service provides drivers with real-time, in-vehicle feedback every trip, every mile. At the start of every trip, a driver starts out “Green.” If a risky maneuver occurs, such as acceleration, braking,lane handling, cornering or speed the GreenRoad display flashes a yellow or red light, depending on the severity of the event. These risky events are tabulated to create a GreenRoad Safety Score weekly and monthly.
A GreenRoad Safety Score is a measurement of events per ten driving hours. GreenRoad considers a Safety Score of 20 or below safe or “Green” driving. Scores between 21 and 50 are moderately risky. Any driver with a score over 50 is considered a risky driver.
