1. A computer-implemented method for evaluating driver performance, the method being performed by a computing system that includes an on-board vehicle monitoring system having sensors for monitoring operations of a vehicle in which the on-board vehicle monitoring system is installed, the computing system also including a storage device storing driving criteria and driver profile data and a processor that is configured to execute computer instructions stored in the storage device to implement the method, the method comprising:

  • the computing system detecting operations of a vehicle by a specific driver using one or more sensors of an on-board vehicle monitoring system installed in the vehicle;

    the computing system identifying violations in the operations by at least (a) comparing the operations by the specific driver of the vehicle to stored criteria and (b) using the one or more sensors of the on-board vehicle monitoring system for determining whether the specific driver is utilizing a wireless device during operation of the vehicle; and

    the computing system storing a record for each of the violations and, at the end of an evaluation period, and calculating a grade for the specific driver based on the identified violations.
