SAN FRANCISCO — Nearly all San Francisco city vehicles will soon be equipped with telematics vehicle tracking systems intended to collect data on drivers and their behavior on the road under legislation approved by the Board of Supervisors, Bay City News reports.

The data collected by the black box-like devices is intended to help prevent pedestrian deaths by reducing speeding and encouraging safe driving. The devices will also reduce costs by helping city officials maintain vehicles more effectively, increase fuel efficiency and limit unauthorized use.

Recently, a paratransit bus struck and killed an 86-year-old woman, who had just gotten off the bus and was crossing the street. For the full story, click here.
