Did you know that the way you drive has a massive effect on how much fuel your vehicle uses? Heavy braking, sharp turns, and certain gear usage can lead to your drivers using considerably more fuel than they need to.
As a parallel, picking up good driving habits will help to make a drive smoother and less strenuous on the engine, leading to less wear on the vehicle and of course, massive savings on fuel.
Additionally, with ever-increasing pressure on businesses to be eco-friendly, it can seem like a challenge to add to your green credentials and reduce your carbon footprint.
So, what can you do to tick all the boxes and make your business
safer, greener and more environmentally sound?
An added benefit to the training is safety. In general, learning how to drive more smoothly and anticipate hazards sooner feeds not just into fuel saving but also good driving practice, so your drivers will have a chance to work on improving their overall driving skill while on the session
