VisionTrack joins with Brake to promote road safety

Simon Marsh, VisionTrack

In-vehicle CCTV specialist VisionTrack has partnered with national road safety charity Brake to help promote safer driving across the UK.

The business will support Brake’s campaign activities to stop road deaths and injuries.

Simon Marsh, managing director at VisionTrack, said: “Brake’s resources for fleet professionals are highly valuable and we hope to work closely with them to raise awareness of the role technology has to play in changing driver performance and encouraging better driving.”

He added: “In 2015, the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) reported that 86% of company car fleets were involved in an incident over a 12-month period, while 100% of fleets found that one of their drivers was at fault.

"Telematics cameras combined with driver development initiatives are key to helping fleets reduce these rates.”

VisionTrack launched its next-generation 3G VT2000 vehicle camera last month.

Sarah-Jane Martin, senior corporate fund-raiser at Brake, said: “Fleet drivers make up a large percentage of vehicles on our roads and they are key in helping eliminate road crashes that cause casualties.

"We actively engage with fleet operators and drivers through our training and events programme, which includes our Fleet Safety Awards and our Brake Professional membership service, providing best practice and risk management guidance."
