WOULDN’T it be great to get company car drivers to drive more safely, and save money on fuel at the same time?
It’s a double whammy: save on fuel costs; save on accident damage.
Overall what drivers need to do is create more time and more space
So how can you turn this into reality?The amazing (and frustrating!) thing is that drivers don’t really have to change much of what they do to get a substantial saving in fuel consumption. They just need to change a few small things in the way they go about their usual everyday driving for business.
Making drivers part of the solution – not the problem
Saving fuel is the new ‘buzz phrase’ in driver training, as companies start to realise that spending a little on training can show a great return in fuel savings and insurance premiums.
But drivers have to be part of the revolution and take on board safer and more economical ways to drive that will improve their contribution to the company and to themselves.
And while this list isn’t exhaustive, it’s a good place to start, and there’s nothing here that can’t be achieved by any business that applies itself to the challenge.
