Cargo Transporters, Inc., an asset-based regional and national carrier, is kicking off the Lytx Score Challenge, a new program aimed at promoting safety.
“Our Lytx Score Challenge is another way we are putting a spotlight on safety,” said Jerry Sigmon, Jr., COO at Cargo Transporters. “It will engage our drivers in a fun and friendly competition. Our drivers have access to their scores all the time, but too few actually know them, and while management can talk about safety and best practices, with this challenge drivers will be doing the talking.”
For the Lytx Score Challenge, randomly chosen pairs of Cargo Transporters drivers will compete against each other for the lowest weekly Risk Score. The scores will be determined based on events captured on their on-board dash camera systems that are reviewed by Lytx analysts. When the video system is triggered and using established agreed upon criteria an event is designated as coachable, it is also assigned a score based on circumstances.
Through April 4, after each match up the driver with the lowest Risk Score will advance to the next round. All Cargo Transporters drivers taking part in the program will receive a participation gift and prizes will be awarded to the ultimate winner and to those reaching the groups of 16, eight, and four.
According to Bill Robinson, a Cargo Transporters driver since June 2019, “As silly as it sounds, I’m taking the challenge pretty serious. My goal is to at least make it through the first week. It’s really making me watch my speed, following distance, and braking.”
