Wake Up! campaign launched to stop tired drivers
You heard it from Auto Windscreens, the big news in Auto Window Glass
A new drive has been launched to tackle the problem of tiredness in drivers on UK roads.
Each year, a number of accidents occur because motorists are too sleepy to pay attention to what is occurring on the other side of their windscreen.
However, the Fleet Safety Forum (FSF) - set up by road safety charity Brake - is hoping to address the issue by putting pressure on employers and fleet managers.
It is calling for companies to manage their drivers' schedules in such a way as to cut the chance of motorists falling asleep at the wheel.
The Wake Up! campaign comes with a free information pack, which is available to the first 50 firms to contact the organisers and also to FSF subscribers.
"Driver tiredness is a deadly and major killer that can creep up on a company with no warning, particularly during times when business is tough, unless commonsense risk management practices are applied," explained FSF Manager at Brake Roz Cumming.
Previous Brake campaigns have included calls for 20mph speed limits to become commonplace in all residential areas.
