Does anyone use telematics to monitor the way cars are driven?

As an individual, kind of;
Instead of a rev counter my dash has an economy meter, indicates how much throttle is being used and thus how much fuel. I try and keep it in the 'eco' range as much as possible and rarely venture into the 'power' zone. It also tells me when it's running on battery power which I try to maintain as much as possible.
Coupled with the instantaneous mpg readout on the dash it lets me drive as economicaly as I can.

If I ignore all this then my mpg drops by about 8-10mpg so in a way I'm using telematics and not driving like in a standard car.

Believe me Grandad,you really don't want to know! But we fitted cctv to vehicles owned by us, inside and out. What I can tell you is that in the past 6 years, no other motorists have phoned us to complain about poor driving. Neither have any customers on board the vehicles either.

Best investment anyone can make to protect drivers, punters and vehicles.

I think the price of these tracking systems is very high compared to the benefits
