Many people that decide to take out a car or van leasing deal use their vehicle for work. This is usually because of the added benefits and cost savings that can come from choosing such a contract for working professionals.
However, these busy drivers are also more likely to be involved in situations where good and safe driving skills are imperative, given the fact that they are usually travelling in rush hour meaning that stress levels are high on crowded roads.
Offering advice and guidance for professional drivers, road safety charity Brake has launched a new website for professionals. The site gives motorists quick access to tools that help to promote safe behaviour on the UK's road networks.
Brake Professional is a portal to a number of tools that aim to help road safety professionals, fleet managers and others to promote good driving skills and run road safety activities and campaigns.
The new website will replace Brake's former Road Safety Forum and Fleet Safety Forum websites. The road safety charity hopes that having a number of resources in one place will allow easier access and encourage more working professionals to initiate safety campaigns.
Those who visit the website will be able to find a number of tools including guidance reports on a range of road safety topics, research and best practice advice, advice sheets to give to drivers providing key road safety advice, posters on a range of topics for displaying in the workplace, and a pledge toolkit consisting of resources to help professionals deliver key messages.
Katie Shephard, director at Brake, said: "Nearly a third of journeys on our roads are made by at-work drivers, who are more likely to be in a crash than people driving in their own time.
"By working closely with fleet and road safety professionals we provide them with the correct resources they need to improve road safety. This new website helps them achieve this better than ever before."
