New Brake Professional fleet resource highlights consequences of distracted driving
Brake has launched a new resource to help educate at-work drivers on the importance of not using their phones behind the wheel.
The new poster, sponsored by Garmin, is offered through Brake Professional, Brake’s membership service for fleet operators and suppliers, and is designed to be used by anyone with responsibility for managing at-work drivers, regardless of budget, fleet size, or vehicle type.
The ‘Phones on silent’ poster reminds drivers of the real-life consequences of checking your phone at the wheel. It’s available free of charge to all Brake Professional members through www.brakepro.org. Non-members can order the ‘Phones on silent’ poster from the Brake shop, or join Brake Professional for £50 + VAT per year, to access these and other resources.
Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said: “Employers have a responsibility to ensure their at-work drivers are paying full attention to the road, and not using their phone at the wheel. This new Brake Professional poster shares the story of one of our Brake volunteers, and highlights the consequences of distracted driving.
“I would urge anyone with responsibility for managing at-work drivers to make use of this essential resource to remind their drivers of the dangers of using phones, including hands-free, at the wheel.”
