TargetSolutions Releases New Fleet Program Aggressive Driving Online Course

The estimated 35,200 individuals killed in motor vehicle fatalities on U.S. roads in 2015 is alarming to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) and State Highway Safety Office members. These findings represents the largest year-over-year percentage increase (7.2 percent) since national record-keeping began.

Due to the dangerous, and potentially fatal, consequences of aggressive driving, TargetSolutions’ online training catalog for motor vehicle safety is designed to change driving behavior and reinforce critical safe-driving strategies. A fully updated Fleet Program Aggressive Driving course is also included in this course library with up-to-date information and a new engaging interface.
