Brake has released a new interactive game to help employers get to grips with the issue of distracted driving.

The interactive tool will help employers get to grips with the problems posed by distracted driving

The game has been developed in collaboration with SmartDrive Systems – which develops video-based fleet safety solutions – and takes users through a virtual drive where they are tasked with identifying many of the distractions that drivers are exposed to on a daily basis.

The game provides important advice and guidance to highlight the risks associated with each identified distraction and what drivers can do to minimise the risk of being affected by them.

The interactive tool is available free of charge to all Brake Professional members through www.brakepro.org and non-members can order it from the Brake shop.

Sarah Plumb, senior fleet officer at Brake said: “A moment’s distraction can be fatal. Employers must implement policies and take steps to educate drivers on the risks of driving whilst distracted. This new resource, supported by SmartDrive, is a brilliant way to engage your drivers on the risks distractions pose.”
