Keeping you up to date with the latest Crashmate news and industry news regarding health and safety for motorists.
That drive towards the motorway for the first time can be terrifying but with less roundabouts, turns and stop/start driving, the motorway can be a lot simpler than city roads; in fact they are the safest roads to drive on!
– On the motorway you will find a lot of road signs so it is best to brush up on your understanding from your theory test.
-Check you know where you’re going, whether you’re following road signs or a sat-nav – getting lost on the motorway can cause you to panic and travel a lot further than necessary
-Move into the correct lane with enough time
-Do not attempt to change lanes last minute, take your time and move over before the exit arrives
-Before overtaking, remember to indicate and check your blind spot – it is easy to forget about the motorcyclists passing by
-Keep a safe and longer stopping distance between you and the car in front as you are traveling at high speeds
-Stop at a service station if you become tired on your journey
The main thing is to remain calm and you’ll discover how easy driving on the motorway can be.
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.
