Best Ryders get reward

Rental firm Ryder has teamed up with grand prix circuit Silverstone to promote safer driving among its employees.

The company selected 50 of its drivers to take part in the Ultimate Driving Experience, organised with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

About 900 drivers competed for places with the successful candidates identified as low risk in driver assessments as well as being free of accidents and endorsements over the past year.

The day developed driver skills through tasks such as precision LGV manoeuvring sessions, high-performance and off-road driving. Errol Taylor, deputy chief executive of RoSPA, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Ryder on the Ultimate Driving Experience and the day is just reward for those employees who have demonstrated high levels of safe and responsible driving over the past year.”

Simon Head, health, safety, environment and security manager at Ryder, said: “We hope the Ultimate Driving Experience will become an annual event that serves as an incentive to all our drivers to stay focused on road safety.”
