Caroline Scurr, Director of Driving for Better Business, said:

This is an excellent source of information for fleet best practice. Driving for Better Business is all about raising awareness of the importance of work related road safety and I’m delighted that some of our business champions have been able to contribute their case studies to Professor Tourick’s book. Their specialist knowledge and experience will undoubtedly provide ideas and opportunities for other organizations for improving their own road safety management policies.

Other advocates of the Driving for Better Business Campaign also feature in their own chapters in the publication, including Kwik-Fit Fleet, LeasePlan, and NBTN.
