Your nonprofit’s drivers are your ambassadors.

When your nonprofit’s vehicles are out on the road, they’re representing your nonprofit — so you want to be sure your drivers are paying attention when they’re behind the wheel.

NIA’s partnership with SafetyFirst means qualifying nonprofits can get free access to vehicle and driver monitoring services through SafetyFirst.

Safer driving for a stronger community.

Demonstrate your nonprofit’s commitment to road safety by inviting community feedback.

Get early warning signs.

Early warning identification of drivers who are causing unsafe conditions and who may need added supervision to correct unsafe driving performance.

Benefits of SafetyFirst’s driver and vehicle monitoring include:

“How am I driving?”

Equip your nonprofit’s vehicles with a bumper decal that shares a toll-free number for motorists to share feedback — both positive and negative — about how your drivers conduct themselves on the road.

Call screening and recording.

All calls are recorded, and SafetyFirst staff are trained to note callers’ emotions and engage them in polite interrogation to gain details of any incident.

Supervise the drivers who need it most.

SafetyFirst tracks and identifies your higher-risk drivers, as well as your good drivers, allowing you to focus corrective attention on those drivers who need it most.

Coaching made easy.

Incident-specific training documents are delivered via email with each driver observation report, which makes on-the-spot coaching easy to document.

Eligibility requirements:

You must have an NIA Business Auto policy that includes 10 or more insured vehicles. Scheduled vehicles only.
