Driver Hire supports road safety week

Driver Hire supports road safety week

Organised by Brake, the national road safety charity, the theme for 2022 is ‘Safe Roads for All’

Bradford-based national recruitment company, Driver Hire, is playing its part in preventing deaths and injuries on UK roads by supporting this year’s Road Safety Week from 14 to 20 November.

Figures from the Department for Transport (DfT) show that in 2021, 1,558 people died in traffic accidents on UK roads. This is a reduction on pre-pandemic levels, but as COVID restrictions were still in place in the first half of the year, they don’t reflect the general trend which suggests that, as restrictions were lifted in the second half of the year, casualty rates quickly increased.

Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s chief executive, said: “As one of the leading suppliers of temporary drivers to the road transport and logistics industry we’ve around 4,000 drivers out on the road every day. Clearly, we want to ensure their safety and the safety of all other road users, in particular the more vulnerable – pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders and motorcyclists. That’s why we’ve been a keen supporter of Road Safety Week for over 25 years.

“On Brake’s list to achieve safer roads for all is ensuring the safety of vehicles. So, this year we’re also reminding our drivers about the importance of completing a daily walk-around check of their vehicle before starting a shift. It only takes five to 10 minutes to do the basics, such as checking tyres, lights, mirrors and other items before setting off. To help, we’ve produced a ‘Daily Walk Around Check’ poster which covers all the key elements. Ensuring it’s done could be a vital element in keeping both drivers and all road users safe, cutting the number of deaths and injuries on our roads.”
