TomTom research into van driver behaviour shows worrying trends

New research from navigation giant TomTom indicates that more than a third (39%) of UK van drivers drive more carefully when using their personal vehicle as opposed to a company vehicle.

The research, conducted among light commercial vehicle (LCV) drivers, found 67% of those that drove more carefully when using their personal vehicles did so to save money on fuel and vehicle wear and tear, whilst 29% labelled the absence of working time pressures as the reason for their improved driving behaviour.

In addition, 59% said they were more likely to speed or take risks on the road in their work vehicles as a result of time or working pressures.

Reckless driving can costs companies thousands of pounds a year, and with these statistics in mind, are you sure there’s nothing more that you can do to help your drivers to help you save money?
