Driver behaviour tech to save charity £6k a year on fuel
Regional children’s charity Break is on track to see a 10-15% saving on its current £60,000 per annum fuel bill with the help of an in-vehicle driver behaviour solution.
Break currently runs a 30-strong car fleet, and more than 300 people drive the vehicles with the Lightfoot technology, which is part of Activa Contracts’ suite of vehicle and driver risk management solutions available to customers.
Clive Catterall, the charity’s health and safety facilities manager with responsibility for the fleet, said: “During a week behind the wheel of a Lightfoot-equipped vehicle, I was able to increase fuel economy by 10mpg. If that is repeated across the fleet in the coming months and years that will deliver a significant cost saving and more than pay for the technology.”
The charity is also expected to see reduced insurance premiums as a consequence of fitting the technology across the fleet, along with less vehicle wear and tear on components.
