Keeping you up to date with the latest Crashmate news and industry news regarding health and safety for motorists.
We all knew this would happen, yes even you! Technology is taking over once again but this time the gadgets have grown in size and they are taking over our roads.
Earlier this year (2016) the government gave the big thumbs up for driverless car projects to be started within the UK. Yes that’s right we said it, driverless cars. These extraordinary gadgets allow you to get in the car and be chauffeured around without the awkward small talk and expensive suits. You are able to take in the pretty views on a lovely summery day and experience a stress free long hall journey on the road.
These super cars of the a future we all thought was light years away, will provide you with the technology needed to get you to and from destinations safer, faster and more smoothly. Not only are they said to increase the safety of drivers but also increase the safety of the passengers and pedestrians within the community. Driverless cars like the one that Google is testing at the moment, will have programs installed within them, which will alert drivers on congestion, accidents, and hazards that are along their route.
It is inevitable that the advanced technologies will affect every thing that you do, that is why we argue that it is so important to keep up with the forever-changing world. Later this month we will be launching the Crashmate accident kit as an app. Accidents happen and it is important to make sure that precautions are taken. This app will enable you to have your accident kit to hand 24/7 whilst you are on the move. It is very easy to follow and there are only 7 simple steps to support you though a stressful situation.
But remember, as great as technology is, be careful not to rely too much on it. Always have a Crashmate car kit handy with you on the move in the glove box of your car or in the boot, as a back up in unfortunate circumstances.
Don’t take the risk!
Remember….. Be prepared, Stay alert! Stay safe!
I bought a Crashmate kit for my daughter after she passed her driving test; we wanted to make sure she could look after herself if ever she was involved in an accident. I've been in an accident before and I know how shook up you can be and we want to make sure she can handle herself and knows the right things to ask for.
All of our drivers' have Crashmate kits as standard, our regulations mean that we have to provide on-the-scene driver support and we believe these kits do just that. We opted for the personalised kits so our drivers have the contact names and numbers of duty managers to make reporting these incidents easier.
Having used Crashmate kits for over 8 years as an after-sales gift to our customers, we continue to be impressed by the level of service from such a helpful team. They're always able to help guide us as to what to put on our kits to make sure we communicate effectively with our customers and still keep the safety messages required.
