Road safety charity Brake has announced it will be making its first appearance at the annual Commercial Vehicle Show this year, where the organisation will be aiming to highlight the importance of responsible driving behaviour to attendees.
Taking place at the Birmingham NEC from April 29th to May 1st, the event will see hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of guests looking to find out more about the latest developments in the CV sector and this is where Brake hopes to make an impression on visitors.
Ellie Pearson, Brake’s senior professional engagement officer, said: “At-work drivers are an especially high risk group on our roads; that’s why Brake is so delighted to be exhibiting at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show.”
She added fleet decision makers can make a huge difference to road safety in the UK, as they should be encouraging their drivers to act as safely as possible when they are out on the roads.
Failure to do so can have far-reaching and tragic consequences both for businesses and the public, so it is in everyone’s best interests for firms to have the best understanding of how their drivers can carry out their work commitments in the safest possible manner.
As a result, Brake will be hosting its Fleet Safety Forum at the event, where it will be aiming to educate and engage with at-work motorists, encouraging them to stay within the rules of the law at all times or face up to the reality that their actions could cause serious harm.
Individuals who have fallen foul of the law due to driving at excessive speed in the past may find they now face higher than expected premiums once their debt to society has been repaid.
