The Transport Research Laboratory has secured funding for a scheme which aims to reduce tailgating among business drivers and is looking for local authorities to pilot the project.
"This project tackles two important issues: close following which is of concern to many road users and driving for work which poses increased risk to all drivers," said Robert Gifford, chief executive of the Road Safety Trust, which is funding the project. "I hope that the Trust's support will help to develop a useful tool for employers as they take their role in managing this issue seriously."
TRL said it is now looking for local authorities to put forward employers and develop a series of behaviour-change techniques to measures and influences attitudes towards tailgating.
