Do you see any major benefit to having a speed limiter or restrictor placed on a vehicle? Do you think they hinder productivity rather than enhance it or even benefit you as a company in other ways? There are, in fact, a lot of plus points for getting speed limiters placed on vehicles, and we thought it was about time to highlight some of the major factors. Speed restrictors were originally designed as a safety aspect. Improving the accountability of drivers on all the roads and highways to ensure that vehicles never accelerated beyond a certain speed. It certainly isn’t just for vehicles with a personal use, but also can help with commercial vehicles and company fleets.

A car that can drive itself? It certainly could be a flagship visionary for many company fleets as you begin to tally up exactly how much a human driver costs your business each year. The salary, the expenses, and not to mention those unforeseen costs like speeding fines, etc. However, it is fast becoming a reality as more manufacturers look at the option of driverless technology and how it can be implemented into vehicles that we could see on the road in the UK. Which is why we thought it might be worth sharing some more information on these autonomous vehicles. A little background and history and even some suggestions on how it could help your business moving forward.
London already has a number of emission reducing strategies in place and has even talked up the prospect of joining the likes of Paris, Mexico City and Madrid in banning diesel vehicles from the city centre. With this in mind, we’ve taken a look at the current situation and how such changes are likely to affect businesses who manage a fleet of vehicles.
The core of any business that relies on getting goods from one place to the next, or even their employees out in full force, will rely heavily on their vans or fleet of vehicles. There is no shying away from the huge benefits these vehicles offer you. Not to mention the money they potentially save you on outsourcing this side of things out to someone else. However, not taking care of your fleet can be disastrous. Which is why it is worth remembering some of the major factors that can help ensure that your van fleet stays healthy and running smoothly. In this day and age, there are still thousands of unroadworthy and unmaintained vans and vehicles on the road that are causing more issues for the UK. Because of this, there is now more funding in place set aside from the government for more roadside checks to be done, and for more vans and trucks to be stopped to check. It is now more essential than ever to ensure that your fleet is up to scratch.
