Since July 2013 when we implemented the simulator in our facility, we’ve seen a 38% reduction in crashes. And, so far this year, we are trending well below last year’s numbers.

VDI’s driving simulators have proven to be a cost-effective and engaging way to provide refresher training before and us post office logo imageafter accidents to our Postal Carriers and Tractor/Trailer Operators. More importantly, the simulation-based driver safety training has considerably reduced accident rates in the Suncoast District during our trial period compared to the same period last year. In fact, we have had only one backing accident since we got the simulator in Tampa compared to last year when there were 26!

When we looked at the potential benefit to Bright House Networks of a new and creative way to address the challenge of distracted driving and the possible payoff, measured in terms of human life, property damage, operations hindrance, and impact to brand name, it just made sense to add the Virtual HD® simulator to our safety program. VDI is working with our Corporate Safety Department to reduce driving errors, save money, and bottom line, to save lives!

The Virtual HD® simulator allows us to address driver safety in a new and exciting forum, as opposed to the traditional meeting forum, to continue to drive our safe driving focus. Since the simulator is portable, it also allows us to save on travel expenses by bringing the simulator to the employees, which helps us logistically. The virtual lessons compliment and parallel our current Smith System driving philosophy giving us a more consistent safe driving message.
