SAFETY THROUGH ECO DRIVING
Safe and Eco Driving
Is it possible to save fuel, reduce costs and put less strain on the environment?
The answer is YES, as a driver you too can save costs. Performing regular maintenance, ensuring vehicle inspections daily, making sure that any concerns are remedied immediately, and driving in a safe and economical style, are all actions that contribute to managing costs.
The Eco part of this driving style is that you as a driver are more aware of how to use your vehicle more economically and in a responsible way. In addition, as a driver with a calm, safe and environmentally-friendly driving style, you also improve the company’s image.
