Smith System, specializing in professional driver training, recently announced The Driver's Log -- a new educational series that ties the results of driver training to the real-world management issues of both truck and car fleets, the company reports. Driver's Log 1.0 describes the fuel savings generated by driving less aggressively. Entitled Right Foot Fuel Economy, this first-in-the-series article details how a systematic approach to driver training can not only reduce accidents but also has the potential to generate significant fuel savings. An example of a fuel savings calculator is included to give the reader an idea on how to evaluate the potential to save fuel. Drivers who take the Smith 5 Keys training course learn to pace traffic flow to keep their cars or trucks in motion rather than constantly starting and stopping with "the traffic pack" in city driving. The result is a combination of safer driving, less wear and tear on the power train and fuel savings.
