Re: Work for Govt? Drive a govt vehicle?
Islip saved nearly 14,000 gallons of gas over a three-month period from the previous year after GPS devices were installed. Nolan said that shows that employees know they are being watched and are no longer using Islip's 614 official vehicles for personal business.
14,000 gallons at $3.00/gal (probably low estimate) is $42,000. Since they have 614 vehicles, that's about $70 of gas savings per car per three months.
I bet those GPS units are not more than 150/200 each -- they will pay for themselves in a year just from gas savings!
Not to mention, the productivity increase from employees not going to the gym on the clock
sounds great to me!
