Technology-based driver safety specialist GreenRoad is to partner with Smith System,
the provider of collision avoidance driver training, to offer a comprehensive
solution of both in-vehicle driver safety technology and coaching and
instructor lead training.
The new offering is designed to proactively help organisations
worldwide, including in the UK through Smith System EMEA, reduce the risk of accidents and risky driving
