ADAS – saving money, saving lives

ADAS – saving money, saving lives

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (or ADAS for short) are the focus of the Driving for Better Business programme this month.

ADAS covers all the collision avoidance systems and driver assistance technology that can help prevent a collision or minimise the severity in the event that the incident can’t be avoided altogether. ADAS technology is proven to reduce collisions and costs for fleet managers. For example,  when fitted to cars,  AEB has been proven to reduce rear-end collisions by up to 38% and third-party claims by up to 45%.

The benefits to fleets are clear – less time off road for vans and LCVs involved in collisions, lower repair costs,  improved driver safety and less risk of reputational damage. Of course, as Matthew points out in the podcast, there is also the opportunity to talk to fleet insurers about a reduction in insurance premiums if your vehicles have this safety technology fitted.
