Fleet vehicle managers in Australia presently lack a reliable benchmark database on the performance of their fleet drivers, vehicles and their different environments. This lack of reliable information became apparent following requests from fleet managers of the National Safety Council of Australia (NSCA) member organisations and others for access to data on fleet accidents. According to Jim Whiting, National Chief Executive Officer of the NSCA the only information available was American data provided by the National Safety Council (USA) who publish an annual "Fleet Accident Rates". This data is a compilation of accidents for 857 fleets travelling 3.9 billion miles involved in 31,252 accidents.
