Carsharing service in Moscow is developing at a fast pace, and since this market is new in Russia, the development process reveals needs for improvement and various protection mechanisms for both the car park and the car-drivers themselves. 
One of the leaders of the carsharing market Yandex.Drive is going to introduce a specially designed system to control the driving habits of drivers, and cut off those who drive aggressively to avoid accidents.

How exactly will the driving style of the carsharing driver be regulated?

When renting a car in carsharing, drivers will now have to consider that their driving style will be monitored and analyzed very carefully. How exactly is aggressive riding characterized? This includes impetuous movements, both harsh starting from a spot, and a sharp braking. All this is potentially fraught with accidents, and therefore will be suppressed.

Tough measures will not be introduced immediately: as a prevention measure drivers aggressive drivers won't be able to rent luxurious cars. If such a measure does not work, then the driver will be unable to rent inexpensive cars. While, malicious violators will be blocked and refused using carsharing at all.

Of course, the entire analysis of the driver’s driving behavior is carried out automatically using special equipment. For each person, the acceleration and stopping amplitudes for the last ten trips will be compiled in order to predict the probability of an accident on an 11th trip. There is a high probability that other carsharing companies will follow the example of Yandex.Drive, which should positively affect the driving style of all drivers as a whole, and in turn have a beneficial impact on reducing accident rates.

Another initiative came from the traffic police.
It involves providing the following information for carsharing companies:
• Facts of deprivation of a driver’s license
• Facts of regular traffic violations

All these measures are aimed at preventing people who have been disqualified from driving at least once or those who constantly violate traffic rules to use the car sharing service. Moreover, not only the inhabitants of Russia, but also foreign citizens will be blacklisted.

In 2018, the carsharing client base expanded to 230,000 people, and the expansion trend will continue. It is absolutely clear that drivers need to be disciplined, and since carsharing is becoming increasingly part of our daily lives, “educating” motorists is just more effective through the above measures. Moreover, mainly car sharing users are young drivers who, quite possibly, have not yet developed a basic driving style, and who will be positively affected by regulatory measures.
