Appy Fleet, part of Trak Global Group (TGG), is teaming up with charities Brake and UK Youth during this year’s Road Safety Week (20-26 November) to promote safe driving for fleet employees on the UK’s roads.
Andrew Brown-Allan, who runs Appy Fleet, a safer driving app which uses telematics to score driving behaviour, said that 30 per cent of all UK road accidents involved someone driving for business.
To support Road Safety Week, the company has launched the “Perfect 10 Challenge”, a competition to find the UK’s safest fleet drivers.
He said: “Any UK fleet – cars and/or vans – can take part. We are using the Appy Fleet app to highlight road safety for business driving and raise money for UK Youth and Brake, two charities who do great work in promoting safety on the roads and amongst young drivers”
“Applications are through our dedicated landing page, where each organisation can register to enter the competition. They will then receive an information pack and simple instructions on how their drivers can download our Appy Fleet app to their smartphone. The app uses telematics to score how people drive, and for every journey on Appy Fleet of over 10 miles that scores a perfect 10, we will donate £10 to charity, up to £10K.”
In addition, the best performing fleet wins an F-1 style VIP karting experience for ten of their drivers.
Participating teams need to register on the landing page by 10 November to take part, where the full terms and conditions are set out.
Alice Cooper, spokesperson for Brake the road safety charity said: “This is a great competition for fleets to compare themselves against their peers for road safety and we are delighted to support this Appy Fleet initiative.”
Appy Fleet is a great example of how new technology can identify the best, and most dangerous, business driving in real time. Better driving not only reduces accidents but it is cost effective too, as better drivers use less fuel and cost less to insure.”
