MPs join move to cut death toll of at work drivers

Monday 27th April 2009

Six MPs have joined the move to reduce occupational driver deaths by signing up for a new driver risk management system from IAM Fleet, the commercial arm of the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists).

Seb Goldin, IAM Fleet managing director, said: "Around a third of all road accidents involve people driving for work, and for every death there is an associated cost to the economy which can total billions of pounds each year. This is why we are asking MPs to take the lead in reducing the road death rate."

MPs took part in an online risk assessment of their driving - the first step of a driver risk management programme - which identifies aspects of an individual's driving that need development. From this, a risk rating determines further training needs, ranging from e-learning to personal on-road training to improve driving skills.
