Posted on February 27, 2014

Lytx Inc., formerly DriveCam Inc., announced the winners of its first annual “Driver of the Year” and “Coach of the Year” Awards. The announcement and awards presentation was made at the second annual DriveCam powered by Lytx Users Conference in San Diego.

The awards honor drivers and coaches among the hundreds of organizations currently using the DriveCam program to improve overall fleet performance. For drivers, Lytx recognized those who operate their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner, have excelled in the DriveCam Program and whose contributions have enhanced the overall image of commercial transportation.

For coaches, the award honored those who have excelled in the “coach” role and whose contributions have enhanced the overall safety of their organization.

Casey Howarth of MV Transportation and John Sanders of First Transit were named first and second place winners, respectively, of the “Driver of the Year” Award for Transit/Motorcoach, while Myron Broadnax of MV Transportation and Scott Speirs of Waste Management took first and second in the Coach of the Year Awards.

DriveCam, powered by Lytx, improves safety by combining data and video analytics with real-time driver feedback and coaching, resulting in reductions in collision-related costs and fuel consumption, according to the company.
