Phone firm’s safety drive

T-MOBILE is installing a driver safety and fleet risk management product in 240 of its 800-strong company car fleet.

The company will use Drive-Diagnostics’ SafetyCentre in the vehicles following a short trial during the summer.

The system uses a sensor fitted in the car that recognises certain manoeuvres or ‘events’, such as excessive braking, corner handling, acceleration and lane changing.

It identifies high-risk/high- cost drivers, encourages better driving habits and lowers risk, liabilities and costs, the company has claimed.

T-Mobile has become the company’s first UK customer. The system is used internationally by other companies including FedEx and Orange.
