Benefits of 'How's my driving?' stickers

Does anyone know of any independent evaluation of the safety benefits of 'How's my driving?' stickers? My main interest is on the effect on bus and truck driver behaviour.

Allan, from memory, I think the AA ran one of these schemes in the past so they may have done some evaluation of it at one time.

Hows my driving

Subjectively, as an observer, I see the notice, but if I am driving I don't have the time to read the number, phone it and report, if the driver is driving well.

OTOH I don't think I have seen a case of bad driving when I have seen that sticker.

But if the driving was bad I would probably not report it as again I probably would not have the time to do so safely or record it for later.

The effect is probably more psychological and its affect may be short. Dashcams are said to have a beneficial affect too.

I did some work with Ross Smith on this a while back, but perhaps before dashcams etc. Feedback was it had its merits both to the public and drivers. From an operational point of view, if a 'complainant' wants to contact you the haulier, the company name and a later check on website is probably easier. I know companies who get compliments / complaints via their website, f.book and allsorts of routes.
If you go that route ensure you have systems to monitor, respond and manage any reports you receive.

Dear Allan, i used the How's My driving stickers back in the 90s on a fleet of hundreds of vehicles, in addition i also had a car sticker on my own vehicle for over a year. I would be happy to discuss my findings with you. Feel free to contact me on 07831512528
