Many drivers spend time on their phone or fiddling with the satnav whilst driving but it appears there are other distractions to think about.  A survey of 1000 drivers by Nextbase found that 1 in 10 would answer a video call whilst driving, 7% were quite happy to use the time behind the wheel to catch up on a TV show and 11% would drive after drinking alcohol provided they felt fine.

It is now illegal to use a mobile phone device for any function whereas the law previously applied to their use for communication.

Ensure your employees are familiar with your “Driving at Work Policy” and its content and make sure that senior personnel lead by example by following the rules.
