As autonomous vehicle technology develops, many fleet operators of all forms are starting to look ahead to see how this technology can help enhance safety and develop their companies in the future. In the latest Brake blog, Cormac Reynolds looks at how that is developing in the taxi industry and how safe it could be.
In July of 2016, Brake launched the Roads to Justice campaign. This brought together many friends and families who have lost loved ones to a criminal driver but felt that they never got the justice that was deserved. One woman who blogged about her experience was Vivienne Craske. In the latest Brake blog she provides an insight into continually striving to get justice for the loss of her brother.
Autonomous cars and similar new technologies are on the brink of changing our world. Much debate has focussed on their potential benefits and the social issues they may cause. However, are the new technologies being introduced too quickly? In the latest Brake blog; Jeremy Rochfort, National Sales Manager at Autoglass®, says many fleets are struggling to adapt to the rapid rate of change and emphasises the need for safety to be maintained as the main priority.
