Driving for Better Business (DfBB) is hosting a number of exclusive demonstration days to allow fleet decision-makers to try out the latest driver assistance technology on both cars and vans.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) technology is proven to reduce collisions and costs, - autonomous emergency braking (AEB) has been proven to reduce rear-end collisions by up to 38% and third-party claims by up to 45% - with fleet decision-makers being urged to fit the systems.
However, DfBB says uptake is poor, with one barrier being the lack of customer knowledge about the different systems available and the business benefits they can bring to a fleet.
The organisation is holding a series of events which give fleet decision-makers the chance to experience the latest systems for themselves, driving in a controlled environment, and in the care of highly trained instructors and engineers.
The next two events are being held on March 20 and March 21 at the Thatcham Research proving ground.
Places are limited to 20 on each day to ensure maximum driving time. Interested fleets can reserve their space by using the Stop the Crash online booking form
