1. A computer-implemented method for monitoring driver behavior and for providing corresponding feedback, the method comprising:

  • a computing system that includes at least one processor, monitoring at least one vehicle parameter during operation of a vehicle;

    the computing system detecting a vehicle operation violation when the at least one vehicle parameter exceeds a corresponding threshold associated with the at least one vehicle parameter;

    the computing system causing a first warning to be rendered to a driver at one or more feedback devices in the vehicle in response to detecting that the at least one vehicle parameter exceeds the corresponding threshold;

    the computing system, in response to detecting that the vehicle operation violation continues to persist without being corrected for a first predetermined period of time after the first warning is rendered, causing a corresponding report violation to be generated; and

    the computing system, in response to detecting that the vehicle operation violation continues to persist without being corrected after the first warning is rendered, causing a second warning to be rendered to the driver at the one or more feedback devices in the vehicle, wherein the second warning is rendered differently or is of a different type than the first warning.
