Fleet drivers need to take a break

More than 50% of fleet drivers are exceeding the Government’s recommended journey duration time without taking a break

Duty of care reports compiled over a six-month period found that over half of car and van drivers were exceeding the Government guidelines of driving for two hours without a break, with the longest continuous journey lasting six-and-a-half hours.

And many fleet managers admitted they are unaware of the Highway Code guidelines, which recommend that drivers have a minimum break of 15 minutes every two hours.
