Brake report outlines essential vehicle checking and maintenance procedures
A new report from Brake outlines how the consequences of not complying with vehicle standards and why it’s important to train your drivers to complete routine vehicle checks.
Run as part of the Global Fleet Champions initiative, the report includes vehicle maintenance and mechanics features advice from key industry players, including John Eastman from the Institute of Road Transport Engineers, who explains why fleet managers should take a systematic approach towards the maintenance of vehicles. Preventative maintenance has a number of benefits, not least the improved safety, reliability and wellbeing of people who drive for work and other road users.
In addition, Autoglass advises fleet managers on how to effectively maintain advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to ensure the technology works effectively.
Jeremy Rochfort, national sales manager for Autoglass, said: “The adoption rate of ADAS in fleet vehicles is much higher as fleet cars tend to be newer and come with up-to-date safety features. However, our research shows that keeping up to date with technology ranks low down on fleet decision-maker’s priorities. That’s why we’re committed to educating the fleet industry on the importance of ADAS calibration and investing in our technical expertise and capabilities to ensure we can match the rising demand for these services.”
