Speed ban contingency call

FLEET managers must take action to keep their drivers on the road as speeding convictions rocket through growing use of speed cameras and stricter speed limits. Since 1995, the number of drivers caught speeding has increased by 150% to more than half a million, of which more than 75,000 led to prosecutions.

With the Government set to introduce a bill to create harsher speeding penalties, Longford Insurance Schemes is calling for companies to consider how they would keep staff moving if they were hit with bans. The firm has launched Chauffeurplan, a mobility insurance protection scheme which provides a driver or pays for taxi fares should key employees lose their licences.
