GreenRoad Technologies Inc. ( announced the launch of a new company that provides driver safety technologies, expansion of its offices into Silicon Valley and the UK, and a new global management team. GreenRoad is focused on improving driver safety for fleets and insurance companies with its Safety Center solution.

Testing shows that Safety Center reduces driver crashes by an average of 54 percent, lowers accident costs by an average of 65 percent and lowers fuel consumption by an average of 7 percent-without invading driver privacy.
