    All the information is very interesting.

    I teach that when you pull off the road, due to poor viability, you should shut OFF you vehicle lights. This was, you are not to inviting other motorists, who are having trouble seeing, from following you and your lights.

    What makes matters worse is the operators who insist on engaging their hazard lights and continuing to drive on the road. Who started this practice?

    Good point Dave on the lights on or off option while pulled off to the side. WE've instructed on drivers to use their hazard lights and to get as far off as possible while still being safe not to go too far off road. As for driving with the hazards on, well that's just ridiculous as can be.

Using Performance-Based Incentives to Optimize the Cost-Effectiveness of Fleet Operations

By Mike Antich
A fleet cost reduction program goes straight to the corporate bottom line. If a company operates at a 10% annual net profit margin, reducing annual fleet expenses by $100,000 is the equivalent of generating $1 million in sales. Although fleet managers manage hundreds of thousands to tens of millions of dollars in corporate assets, only half are incentivized to achieve targeted performance goals. I advocate incentivization should be a universal best practice extended to all fleet managers.
