Belleville – July 9th, 2009 – Safety Track, today announced the release of MARCUS® SpeedLimit, a new real time alert function that will notify fleet managers and owners when a vehicle moves faster than a posted speed limit while traveling on major highways and motorways. Additionally, this information is available on secondary roads in 60 cities throughout the United States.
MARCUS® SpeedLimit is an improvement on the existing speed alert functions that have been available for the last 10 years. Previously, drivers had to travel faster than a pre-determined set speed before the GPS would generate an alert. With the MARCUS® SpeedLimit product, real time alerts are sent when a driver travels 10mph faster than the posted speed limit of a specific road. MARCUS® SpeedLimit uses new posted speed limit information now available from NAVTEQ, the leading provider of digital map data; to compare vehicle speeds to the actual speed limits of the roads customers travel. When exceptions are recognized, email alerts are sent to dispatchers and fleet owners within 30 seconds to help them better understand their drivers’ habits.
Over the years, customers using Safety Track GPS fleet management systems have been able to encourage their drivers to change unwanted driving behavior resulting in fewer accidents and less overall vehicle maintenance.
The main causes for car accidents are reckless and negligent driving. Company drivers who drive more than 80% of their annual mileage on work related journeys have more than 50% more injury accidents than similar drivers who do not work on the roads during the day. Business drivers typically have collision rates that are 30-40% higher than those of private drivers.
The MARCUS® SpeedLimit feature is now available for all customers using the new MARCUS® V8 GPS Fleet Management System for an additional $1.00 per vehicle per month. Users of the application can select Posted Speed Alert in the Alerts application and activate this feature automatically. Customers can also access the Posted Speed Alert Report to provide a summary for any vehicle or fleet.

Improved arrival time estimates and more choices in route selection are key functions that provide fleet managers’ great value.” said Roy Kolstad, Vice President, Enterprise Americas, NAVTEQ. “NAVTEQ continues to invest in value-added content and products that enhance our map and allow fleet management companies to optimize efficiency.
