The average non-fleet motorist in the U.S. travels 12,000 to 15,000 miles annually, and has a one in 15 chance of being involved in a vehicle collision. Most fleet drivers, however, travel 20,000 to 25,000 miles or more each year.

It’s simple math: The more miles on the road, the greater exposure to crash risk.

Whether it is a fender bender or a fatal collision, commercial drivers need to know what steps to take immediately following an accident. It's incumbent upon fleet managers to set an official policy of post-collision best practices.
