Tougher Rules for Young Drivers
August 17, 2012
A fleet software and risk management company have said that tougher rules need to be put in place for young drivers who use cars on work-related journeys.
Jamaa, fleet software firm, have said that employers should look at reducing the number of accidents involving sub-25 year old drivers by restricting access to certain types of business cars and regular checks on their driving licences.
The firm are also calling for a minimum age for when young drivers are allowed to use both company and personal cars for business purposes.
Commenting on behalf of Jamaa, Martin Evans stated:
“Employers can try and limit those risks by, for example, not allowing young and newly qualified drivers to take to the wheel of vehicles above a prescribed brake horsepower and also ensuring they are familiar with the vehicle."
He went on to add that by implementing a variety of methods employers could actively help in reducing accidents, in turn helping to reducing the cost of young driver insurance premiums.
