Fuel Efficient Driving is good for the Environment and the
It is possible to achieve significant fuel savings of up to 30% by careful and considerate driving. Even if a saving of only 10% were achieved it would mean a saving of approx.?300 per year (based upon 30,000 miles driven). Apart from this significant cost saving there are the associated savings to be made from reduced wear and tear on the vehicle and reduced driver fatigue. The environment would benefit as well from the reduced carbon emissions and atmospheric pollutants.
Improved driving skills would mean fewer crashes and less vehicle downtime
A driver travelling 10,000 miles per year stands a 1 in 7 risk of a crash per year whereas the risk increases to 1 in 3 for a driver travelling 30,000 miles per year. A company vehicle is not earning money and paying for itself when it is in the garage being repaired. Training your staff in improved observation and accident anticipation techniques will significantly reduce their crash risk on the road.
