DfT Driving for Work online resource

3 April 2007

The Department for Transport has launched a new online resource for those responsible for staff who drive for work purposes. The site is divided into three areas: ‘The Business Case’, ‘How to manage driving for work’ and ‘Why manage driving for work?’.

The website address is: http://www.dft.gov.uk/drivingforwork/

If you click on ‘Useful Resources’ in the top menu and go to ‘Useful Links’ you will find the Fleet Safety Association listed, this being the recommended source of providers that offer a solution to the problem.  To compliment this, the DfT’s ‘Think!’ campaign has embarked on a communications programme focussed on ‘at work’ drivers too, to co-incide with new enforcement measures as a result of the introduction of the Road Safety Act 2006. There are new posters available and fresh advice on the website (http://www.thinkroadsafety.gov.uk/campaigns/drivingforwork/index.htm), as well as a series of ‘drivetime’ radio advertisements on regional radio, emphasising the dangers of ignoring the more rigorous mobile phone laws that have recently been introduced.
