Small pic fleet

Exelon utilities consists of 3 independent companies: 1) PECO 2) ComEd 3) BGE. As part of performance management and safety, Exelon monitors and tracks information about vehicle accidents from its fleet. The following two datapoints are tracked:

1) Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA): Unplanned events in which the first harmful event involves a motor vehicle in motion coming in contact with another motor vehicle, other property, person(s) or animal(s). It’s measured by number of accidents per million miles driven.

2) Responsible Vehicle Accidents (RVA): Accidents in which the driver failed to do everything that reasonably could have been done to avoid the collision. Also measured by number of accidents per million miles driven.

Below is a table of 2013 rates for the 3 companies:

MVA:

Year - 2013

BGE - 6.75

ComEd - 6.97

PECO - 15.75

RVA:

Year - 2013

BGE - 2.34

ComEd - 2.39

PECO - 3.46

The PECO fleet operates in the Philadelphia metro area, BGE operates in the Baltimore area, and ComEd operates in the Chicago area. Exelon fleet routes include urban, suburban, and rural routes.
