Data-led risk profiling could help drive down accidents, says Chevin
Fleets can improve management of accidents and driver safety by making better, evidence-led projections about fleet risks.
The call comes from Chevin Fleet Solutions, which says that the number of people killed or serious injured on British roads has steadily increased since hitting their lowest rate in 2013.
According to Chevin, data-led risk profiling – including continuous measurement, action and re-measurement of both vehicle and driver risk – can help reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring, as well as manage the aftermath and keep costs down when incidents do take place.
UK drivers urged to make roads safer for children
Road safety charity Brake is calling on all drivers to slow down as research reveals more than half (52%) admit to speeding in 20mph areas.
Published as part of UN Global Road Safety Week, the Brake and Churchill Car Insurance survey of 2,000 UK drivers also reveals that nearly 8 in 10 (78%) think traffic travels too fast in their neighbourhood for the safety of children on foot or bike.
