RoSPA calls for BusinessCar readers' help
09 October 2008
Safety charity RoSPA is hoping for BusinessCar readers' help with new research into younger at-work drivers.
RoSPA is studying 17-24-year-old drivers in a bid to help them stay safe when they are on the road as part of their job.
If you think you'd like to help then go to www.rospa.com/roadsafety/youngdriversatwork/ to complete a 10-minute questionnaire. The survey will be online until December and the results announced in March 2009.
A RoSPA spokesman said: "As part of RoSPA's project, employers are being asked to compare the driving styles of young and more experienced drivers, including how they assess risks, route planning, fuel-efficiency and awareness of the danger of fatigue.
"They are also being questioned about: any policies they have in place, such as a minimum age limit for drivers; how well the present system of learner driver training and testing prepares people to drive for work; and whether post-test driver training would be useful in the workplace."
