Brake and SmartDrive Systems release interactive driver distraction tool

Brake has released a new interactive resource for fleet professionals, in collaboration with SmartDrive Systems, tackling driver distraction.

The new interactive game takes users through a virtual drive where they are tasked with identifying many of the distractions that drivers are exposed to on a daily basis.

Brake’s senior fleet officer Sarah Plumb said: “A moment’s distraction can be fatal. Employers must implement policies and take steps to educate drivers on the risks of driving whilst distracted.

"This new resource, supported by SmartDrive, is a brilliant way to engage your drivers on the risks distractions pose.”

Advice and guidance is provided throughout the game highlighting the risks associated with each identified distraction and what drivers can do to minimise their effect.

SmartDrive Systems’s vice president EMEA Aidan Rowsome said: “Distraction is a major cause of collisions, with too many unnecessary injuries and lives lost every year as a result.

"We work closely with commercial fleets, helping them to proactively identify and coach distracted driving out of their fleets and, as such, are delighted to support Brake with this interactive initiative.”

This interactive tool is available free of charge to all Brake Professional members online and non-members can order it from the Brake shop.
