About the DECA Responsible Driver Program

DECA’s Responsible Driver Program focuses on long-term behaviour change to achieve the professional operation of your corporate fleet. The most current telemetry technology creates a link to driver data that lets us assess behaviours, identify areas for improvement and measure long-term efficiency gains.

This telemetry technology also helps address the highest priority – ROAD SAFETY

Instant communications with the device's data delivers the ability to locate, protect and educate your corporate fleet drivers.

Measuring the Benefits of behaviour change

DECA Responsible Driver is designed to effectively change driver behaviour. This kind of change requires behaviour assessment, identification and alteration. But what about REAL behaviour change?
