1. In an on-board vehicle monitoring system that monitors and reports real-time driving violations to a driver of a vehicle in order to assist the driver in knowing when a violation is occurring, a method of permitting the driver to identify perceived errors in reported violations which are monitored while driving the vehicle, comprising:

  • detecting at a plurality of sensors installed in a vehicle parameters from which data is derived that defines the following information;

    i) where the vehicle is being driven, ii) date and time as to when the vehicle is being driven, iii) road conditions, iv) how the vehicle is being operated, v) whether vehicle equipment is being correctly used, and vi) one or more driver behaviors that are related to safe driving behaviors;

    inputting to an on-board vehicle monitoring system which comprises system memory and one or more processors for data processing, i) the detected parameters from said plurality of sensors installed in the vehicle, ii) thresholds which define criteria against which the detected parameters are evaluated and iii) identification information for the driver of the vehicle;

    the on-board vehicle monitoring system evaluating the input detected parameters by performing the following computer-implemented data processing;

    determining a particular date, time and street where the vehicle is traveling; and

    determining from the input parameters and the thresholds whether one or more of the following violations is occurring;

    the vehicle is being operated in an unsafe manner, the driver of the vehicle is engaging in unsafe behavior, or vehicle equipment is failing to be properly utilized or is being improperly utilized;

    the on-board vehicle monitoring system broadcasting a warning to the driver when a violation is determined to occur;

    the on-board vehicle monitoring system identifying the particular type of violation for which said warning is broadcast to the driver so that the driver is aware of the type of violation;

    in response to said broadcast warning, and in response to an observation by the driver that the broadcast warning is inconsistent with actual driving conditions, at the on-board vehicle monitoring system, activating in response to a single driver input a real-time error indication that said broadcast warning issued by the vehicle monitoring system to the driver of the vehicle is an error based on the vehicle driver'"'"'s observation of the actual traffic conditions or vehicle operation; and

    so that the most current parameters are used to evaluate the driver, in response to said activation by the driver of said error indication, the vehicle monitoring system storing in system memory the data for the error indication, including storing at least the following for each particular type of violation for which an error indication was input by said driver;

    identification of the vehicle,identification of the driver,a particular street location,the date and time the vehicle was traveling on the particular street, andthe detected parameters giving rise to said particular type of violation for which an error indication was input by said driver.
