SAN DIEGO (Nov. 20, 2015) – Is there a true guardian of the roadway on your team whose exceptional safe driving skills make every road they encounter a better one? Lytx, Inc., a global leader in delivering video-based driver safety and compliance solutions, today opened entries for its annual “Driver of the Year” and “Coach of the Year” awards to recognize these superstars.

“Safe drivers don’t just keep themselves and their cargo safe – they help keep roads safe for everyone around them,” said Del Lisk, vice president of Safety Solutions for Lytx, Inc. “These stellar drivers and coaches come from different sectors of the transportation industry, traveling different routes, but they share a common goal of making every journey a safe one.”
Lytx will recognize drivers who operate their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner, who have exceled in the DriveCam ® program, and whose contributions have enhanced the overall image of professional driver safety.
