How's My Driving Blog
Are you ready for road safety week?
Next week is the start of Road Safety Week 2015, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate it than recognising what a fantastic job our haulage drivers do.
Being a driver is statistically one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Over 25% of road fatalities involve a driver who is working. With reports from the GMB, it is also estimated that work vehicles are involved in nearly 54,000 of the crashes that take place in the UK every year – that’s approximately 150 accidents a day! With commercial drivers driving such long distances, the are most at-risk of being involved in an accident.
This is just one of the reasons why we think it’s time to turn the spotlight onto the commercial drivers of the UK. Our campaign for road safety week is all about the drivers. For now, that’s all we can say…
Check back here next week, or keep an eye on our social media and prepare for a bumpy ride, as it’s the drivers turn to take over the wheel!
