Drowsy Driving: Why businesses must wake up to the threat

16 August 2019

A recent article published as part of the Driving for Better Business campaign highlights that fatigue is estimated to account for some 16% to 20% of all vehicle crashes on the UK’s roads.

Despite this, 40 per cent of all car, van and lorry drivers admit to driving while tired. Drivers must understand the dangers of this; equally, businesses must adopt a strict no tolerance approach to their employees operating a vehicle while drowsy.

The article implores businesses to ensure they are taking a proactive approach to preventing drivers operating vehicles while tired.

 It is simply too risky – for both safety and financial reasons – to simply turn the other way.
