All over Europe, businesses allow employees to use their own cars for work journeys. However, research indicates that many drivers are not checking their vehicles before a business trip.
It’s very likely that this is something that companies are simply not aware of, and equally, they may not be aware of some of the implications for the business should the driver be involved in an accident due to lack of vehicle maintenance.
In our new Grey Fleet Review, we look at the issues:

- How many drivers are failing to do even basic vehicle checks
- How little some drivers know about their grey fleet vehicles
- What employers can do to minimise the risks.
