Brake dispenses winter weather advice for fleet drivers
The road safety charity is calling on organisations to ensure their drivers follow the A, B, C of staying safe in bad weather conditions:
- Avoid driving at all if possible
- Be prepared, by planning journeys around bad weather and packing a bad weather kit
- Careful, cautious driving: slow down and be extra vigilant for people and hazards
Thomas Martin and Neil Jowsey, joint managing directors at Arco, said: ‘With the winter weather on its way, we're encouraging drivers to be prepared for the challenging weather. This can mean taking simple preventative steps such as properly clearing icy or snowy windscreens so the road is fully visible, fully removing snow from vehicles and wearing sunglasses to protect against low sun glare. We welcome this advice sheet as a valuable resource to help fleet managers ensure their drivers stay safe this winter.’
The resource, sponsored by Arco, is available for fleet managers to distribute to their drivers through the charity's Fleet Safety Forum and is available for free to Fleet Safety Forum subscribers, or can be purchased for £5 by non-subscribers.
Special offer: the first 25 non-subscribers to request the sheet will get a copy for FREE. Please email [email protected] or call +44 (0)1484 559909 to order.
