Telematics can reduce risks for fleets, says ALD Automotive

Date: 06 May 2011

One-in-two UK financial directors are considering the use of in-vehicle telematics to cut down the risks associated with running corporate fleets, according to research commissioned by ALD Automotive.

The fleet management firm said there are more than 25 pieces of legislation affecting the safe management of employees driving at work.

The laws range from road traffic regulations such as the Road Traffic and Road Safety Acts to the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act and the Health & Safety (Offences) Act.

Punishments vary from fines and penalty points for drivers breaching traffic laws to custodial sentences for company directors and multi-million pound fines for large businesses.

ALD boss Keith Allen said: "Risk associated with drivers and company vehicles is a major issue for UK businesses. We work with companies by having them outsource the management of their company vehicles and can recommend strategies to help them reduce risk. The implementation of telematics can have a significant impact on reducing risk."
