Fleet drivers show their green side in new survey

MOST company car drivers are keen to go green, want a tougher stance on drinking and driving and would welcome a ban on smoking in company vehicles.

Half would like to see the motorway speed limit increased and the vast majority want speed cameras to be clearly visible and not hidden. The opinions of 1,000 fleet motorists were sourced as part of a survey carried out by Leasedrive Group, this year’s Fleet News best contract hire/fleet management company.

It found that 93.8% of respondents would happily drive an eco-friendly vehicle if the UK network of service stations offered adequate refuelling facilities.

Commercial director Roddy Graham said: ‘It would appear company car drivers are greener than most people would give them credit for. With the Government’s target of 5% of all fuel sold in the UK coming from a renewable source, under its Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO), manufacturers and oil companies could help to make this easily achievable by providing a broader range of alternatively-fuelled vehicles and pumps.’
