Onboard computing technology that tracks operational inefficiencies, such as bad driving habits, that increase overall fuel consumption is now becoming common. Along with reducing fuel consumption these onboard systems are also being used to evaluate driver performance. By tracking driver performance trucking companies will be alerted when their drivers are using unsafe driving methods, such as driving at excessive speeds, or slamming on their breaks.

This same technology will also help companies either retrain its drivers or fire those drivers that refuse to be trained. For those companies that refuse to spend the money to train their drivers, or to fire them, a skilled trucking lawyer will be able to show to a jury the indifference of the trucking company.
