Getting your vision checked is important

Don’t blur compliance with your fleet’s vision

You may think it’s a private matter, but as a driver, you need to declare deterioration in vision. Blurring the morality between a person’s privacy and the public’s safety is clearly not right.

At FCS Insurance, we encourage fleet managers to update driver vision policies to better protect their employees and their business

Did you know, in a survey conducted by Venson Automotive Solutions, 70% of motorists have started wearing glasses or contact lenses since passing their driving test, but have not informed the DVLA. Conflicting advice on the rules could be partly to blame, leading to confusion over what is required or recommended.

Getting your vision checked is important

As reponsible drivers, we are all to aware of the £1,000 fine for failing to update details such as name and address on your driving licence, but there is widespread uncertainty over whether the DVLA needs to be informed when someone has to start wearing glasses or contacts for driving. If the DVLA is informed that a driver requires glasses or contact lenses to drive, an 01 code is added to the list on the reverse of the licence.

Keith Bell of The Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents explains: “Legally, if the driver of a car can read a newer-style number plate (2001 or later), from 20m away, with or without glasses or contact lenses for long or short-sightedness, they are classified as meeting the standards of vision for driving but must wear their glasses or contact lenses when driving if necessary to read the number plate.

“There is a set list of conditions which must be immediately declared, and this can be found at Gov.uk. There are also more stringent requirements for drivers of heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and buses.”

If a driver with the 01 code on their licence was pulled over by the police and was found not to be wearing their corrective lenses, they would face a fine of up £1,000 and 3-6 points, and the employer could be liable under duty of care laws. Any fleet operator – whether they run company cars, a grey fleet, HGVs or plant machinery – has a duty of care to make sure their employees are aware of the rules and always wear the corrective lenses they need to drive safely. Adding a requirement that those needing glasses or contact lenses have the 01 code on their licence reduces the risk to the employer as well as to the driver and other road users, by increasing the incentive to always wear the correct glasses or contacts when driving.

Employees who drive as part of their job role must have regular eyesight tests, under current EU legislation, and the employer has a duty of care responsibility to confirm they are fit to drive – this includes passing the eyesight requirements. Any employer found to be in breach of these rules, and therefore putting their employee and other road users at risk, could be prosecuted.

Managing a fleet of vehicles can be very expensive for a business and one of the expenses that sometimes seems harder to control is  fleet insurance. At My Fleet Solutions we offer FCS Insurance Solutions, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA licence number 759713). Through our parent company Fuel Card Services, we can negotiate bigger discounts and introduces quotes for all probabilities: Mixed Fleet Insurance, HGV Dedicated Insurance, Employer’s Liability Insurance, Product and Public Liability Insurance and Goods In Transit Insurance.

Driving With A Smile

As fleet managers, we all like to think the drivers we employ have the same regard for others as you do. But, on the road, events sometimes change mild manners. Well, even I have to admit, that when in a rush I’m not as patient as normal. However, we have all been bought up to share nicely. We have all been taught to understand the other person’s point of view. These same moral principles apply to driving – except, let’s not talk to drivers like children – but this conversation needs to happen.

Richard Gladman, head of driving and riding standards at the Institute of Advance Motoring (IAM) has put together a few top tips to remind us of how to share the road with other users.

Pre-empt what another road user might do and be ready to react if necessary. For example, if a pedestrian is standing between two busy lanes of traffic you may be thinking: “You shouldn’t have crossed there.” Or you could be sympathetic of the fact they’re stranded and allow them to cross if you can do it safely. Whatever the reason, they’re vulnerable and you have the power to help them

Try to see the world through the eyes of others and help them, without them even realising it. If we all did this, it might even catch on. Giving a little more space or a bit of extra time will make a difference

Give way. A large vehicle, such as an HGV or a bus, will need extra room when turning. Give them the room they need to make them feel safe and comfortable when they manoeuvre their vehicle

Allow extra space. Motorcyclists can sometimes been seen filtering through traffic. Why not aid them by moving over slightly to allow them to pass you with ease

Know when to overtake. The summer is here, which means more cyclists will be on the road. Be patient and overtake when the time is right, if you have to follow for a while then leave a sensible space. Make sure your vision ahead is clear and will remain so for enough time to complete the pass. Taking those extra few seconds to overtake carefully rather than rushing could be the difference between getting to your destination safely and being involved in a collision

Richard adds: “Our behaviour towards others often changes when driving. Polite individuals can become territorial monsters fighting for a small space that may take seconds off a journey; this competitive attitude can ramp up stress levels. Remember, until you walk – or in this case drive – a mile in another man’s shoes, you won’t appreciate that driving is much better if we share nicely. Enjoy the sunshine and appreciate the polite waves and smiles you can now collect on your journey.”

Remembering to be polite could save you a whole of trouble. However, My Fleet Solutions has your fleet covered when things do, accidentally, go wrong.

Let My Fleet Solutions guide you through all your options in the event of an accident involving any insurance claim be it your drivers fault or a non-fault claim.

Tiredness fatigue driver

Guard against fatigue in your fleet

Pushing yourself to meet a deadline. Going that extra mile for a customer. All these pressures, can sometimes have a negative impact rather than a positive outcome, and tiredness can be a major influencer on just how vulnerable you can be when driving on the road.

As a fleet manager, you probably have in place some kind of direction that you give to all your drivers about what to do on the road, how to drive respectfully, but what about how to avoid driving when you’re fatigued?

Tiredness is one of the greatest dangers drivers face out on the road. In the UK, driver tiredness accounts for 20 per cent of all accidents, with up to 300 people dying every year because of a driver falling asleep at the wheel. These types of accidents are particularly lethal as the sleeping driver tends not to reduce speed or change direction to avoid impact, quickly enough.

Remember, killing someone while tired at the wheel could lead to a charge of death by dangerous driving, which carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison.

Tiredness fatigue

Tiredness fatigue

What are the fatigue warning signs?

  • Yawning
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Heavy eyelids
  • Eyes beginning to roll
  • Head beginning to droop

What to do

As a fleet manager, make sure you inform your drivers that if they start feeling tired on the road they should not try to fight it off. Advise them to take a break as soon as possible in a safe place like a service station, and never on the hard shoulder.

Once the driver has found a safe place to stop, encourage them to drink a high caffeine drink and to take a short nap. However, caffeine is only a temporary measure and its effects won’t last much longer than an hour. If the driver is still tired after their break, they should not drive on.

It’s a common misconception that tiredness can be fought by turning up the radio, by opening the window, or by talking to a passenger. These measures are in reality, ineffective, and you should not advise your drivers to use them.

Tips to avoid driver fatigue

  • Get a good night’s sleep before you drive a long journey.
  • Build in time to reach your destination (or your night-stop) without rushing. Remove time pressures wherever possible.
  • Avoid driving alone for long distances if possible.
  • On long journeys, take a break of at least 15 minutes after every two hours or 100 miles. Get out of the car, do some exercise, stretch or walk. If necessary, have a caffeine drink or two to boost your alertness.
  • Don’t press on into the night. Avoid driving at times when you would usually be asleep.

Safety Driving Technology Fitted As Standard

European Commission sets safety as standard, not optional

Just as seatbelts are a legal requirement on all cars and vans, now technology addressing accidents will be the latest lifesaving safety features fitted as standard.

Developments in the safety of our roads took a huge leap forward yesterday (Friday, 18th May, 2018), with a European Commission proposal to mandate the fitting of lifesaving technologies, in all new cars.

AEB Safety As Standard

AEB Safety As Standard

This proposal is part of the European Commission’s (EC) Third Mobility Package, which brings a set of measures with the objective of allowing all drivers to benefit from safer traffic, less polluting vehicles and more advanced technological solutions.

More importantly, this proposal is good news for drivers, as the onus of spending more on safety as an extra option, means that decision is pushed back onto the car manufacturers and in one swoop, as it’s now standard, it will dramatically improve the safety of our roads forever.

However, there are still many issues with infrastructure that the cars will need to use to make this technology work safely. There does need to be an integrated road safety strategy, to ensure that safe vehicles are driven by safe drivers on safe roads.

So, if you look after fleet cars, think about adding My Fleet Solutions, as a saftey partner for your business on the road.

From contract vehicle leasing, to the fuel you put in the car, to service and fixing the vehicle, My Fleet Solutions has the right answer to fit your vehicle management needs. The maintenance support doesn’t end there, we can take care of sourcing the right vehicle insurance, telematics system and the most comprehensive accident management support in the industry. If your vehicles need updating too, we have the best pre-registration cars available.

My Fleet Solution will guide you through an accident, safely

Stay on top of smart repairs or accident damage with expert assistance on which body shop is the most appropriate and pay fleet rates for repairs. Everything, with Amber Claims Management, will automatically assist you after an accident occurs.

From removing the vehicle and finding a repairer to handling the claims process and recovering uninsured losses, our fleet accident management company will resolve all associated aspects of an incident.

More importantly, they will be with you and your driver, right from the time the accident happens. There are dedicated service centre agents who are trained to deal with distressed drivers. They can spend the right amount of time on the phone with each driver to accurately capture incident detail, assess liability, and to understand potential indemnity restrictions, whilst providing reassurances following nasty accidents.

For example, your service agents can help your driver get the right information, such as knowing about road markings, damage to all vehicles, the third party driver, if they seem suspicious, number plates, the positioning of the vehicles, tyre/skid marks and signposts. Is the vehicle still driveable?

As you can see, just from these suggestions above, that there are huge, reassuring benefits in having an accident management company on hand to deal with any incidents or accidents.

The claims service will handle the entire process, from the driver’s initial call through to the claim being finalised, providing a courtesy car to match, ensuring the repairs are done to standard and getting the vehicle back on the road.

Choosing My Fleet Solutions Services, means prangs, RTA incidents or third party claims will have a minimal impact on the fleet and your business.

Choose telematics system

Tracking the best telematics deal

Traditionally, there was no idea what went on outside the office walls when employees drove off the lot. As a small business owner, there was no concrete or accurate way to measure job performance and accountability. There was no way to verify a driver’s location at any given time. Nor could owners ensure that employees only used vehicles for authorised uses.

Telematics has introduced a new way to save money, keep your customers happy, lift employee productivity and protect your assets.

The added benefits of all this transparency is that any insurance firms now offer discounts to companies if they use tracking equipment to prove that they drive safely, so you could save a small fortune in premiums.

Your company is also delivering on environmental care, cutting down on CO2 emissions, because the GPS unit can help suggest services that are nearer, and more importantly, provide the quickest route.

However, while telematics continues to transform the world of logistics, as each device becomes more and more sophisticated, there is now a universe of vehicle tracking solutions on offer. Which one is the right one?

Keep on track with telematics

Which telematic solution is right?

Horn Rage

How To Avoid Becoming A Road Rage Victim

We have all come across road rage at some point in our driving lives. When it happens, it can leave you feeling intimidated and scared. But with a bit of planning you can prevent the situation altogether. Richard Gladman, head of driving and riding standards, provides a few top tips about how to avoid being a victim of road rage, and what to do if it escalates.

  • If there’s conflict between two parties, there’s a likely chance you’ve both played a part. This doesn’t mean you should react. Try to take yourself away from the problem – let the other driver go on ahead. Even if you feel wronged, letting the other party go will make no difference to the rest of your day
  • Is someone being confrontational or aggressive? If so, don’t make eye contact and don’t react visibly.
  • Try not to think about them so that the incident doesn’t affect you afterwards
  • If the other party is still being aggressive to you and you are in fear of your own safety, call the police
  • If the other party approaches you in your car, can you drive away safely? If you can, consider doing so.
  • But don’t rush off and drive like the getaway driver in a film, or if you think the other driver is going to chase you
  • Do you have a passengers who can film any behaviour on a mobile phone? This will help in terms of evidence. Remember to include the registration number of the other vehicle involved
  • Don’t open your door, don’t open your windows fully and don’t start or get provoked into an argument
  • If you were at fault, admit it and apologise. It may be enough to diffuse the situation quickly. And do not do anything that can be interpreted as retaliation. Even if you weren’t at fault, is the argument really worth it?Hopefully by now the matter is over and you are driving away. Do acknowledge that this incident will have affected your behaviour. If you feel upset or emotional pull over and get some fresh air or walk around if you need to before resuming your journey.

Find some distraction like listening to the radio – move your mind deliberately onto something else – deliberately driving well would be a good example – but don’t dwell on the incident.

Richard said: “Road rage does not affect everyone every day. If you’re finding it is happening very often, you might want to think about how you engage with other road users.

“Unlike pedestrians walking towards each other; who can easily get a feel of what the other person will do, where they might go or the mood they’re in, you have no such opportunities cocooned in your car.”

He concluded: “No-one need experience road rage, but it us up to each of us to ensure it stays that way.

“So it is important not to be antagonistic or obstructive, perhaps making a person already having a bad day boil over.”

Vehicle Tracking on commercial vehicles

Tracking A Great Solution For Vehicle Telematics

Vehicle tracking systems are not just for delivery vans, this solution could work for your business too. At My Fleet Solutionswe have seen how one small vehicle tracking device can change the entire logistics of any company, no matter what service is being offered. The list of benefits to your fleet and the way you run your business, can be explained

Exceed Customer Expectation

A vehicle tracking system provides a detailed report on the exact location of the fleet allowing you to inform customers on their order’s delivery status such as the accurate time the delivery will arrive. Satisfying customer will strengthen your business relationship. A good business relationship leads to more business deals, which means an increase in profits.

Lowers Carbon Footprint

When you have information on the best and shortest route to take for your vehicles, which is provided by the GPS tracking system installed in your vehicles, you are able to save on fuel consumption which in turn helps save our environment by emitting less carbon in the air. Vehicle tracking automated reports will also save paper and trees that help clean the air.

The small device is hidden, and cannot be tampered with; and you can always deter a thief by advertising the fact, with an in-car sticker, that you have the vehicle protected with vehicle tracking. If your vehicle is stolen, the device helps the authorities trace your vehicle.

Steps Up Efficiency

Installing vehicle tracking devices on your fleet allows you to use the reports generated by the system to evaluate your employees’ performance and attendance and avoid unjust pay. No more unnecessary manpower overtime due to drivers being lost, it will also reduce fuel cost. You will also be able to provide your customer an accurate billing information.

Less Down Time

Some vehicle tracking soloutions offer a diagnostic, which allows you to ensure that your vehicles go in for maintenance whenever necessary, so you aren’t left with broken down vehicles that cost a lot to repair.

Improves Communication

The GPS tracking system logs data on your vehicle’s arrival and departure time at specific places so there’s no need to call the office or the driver, as to whether the given task is done – which saves you essential amount of money on phone bills and other administrative tasks.

Save on Insurance Money

Vehicle tracking can actually wind up saving you money in real terms. Many insurance firms now offer discounts to individuals and companies alike if they use vehicle tracking equipment to prove that they drive safely, so you could save a small fortune in premiums.

MileageCount can save you time, money and a visit from HMRC

My Fleet Solutions makes every mile count

Is managing the mileage of your fleet a big issue or are you quietly confident your drivers are following the correct procedures? Have you noticed some of your drivers make more trips than is necessary? Are all your vehicles being used for a mix of business and personal journeys? Does all this mileage reporting take too much time? Is it really a major concern? If it isn’t, it should be. The HMRC can investigate your business mileage,at any time, and the inspectors are only satisfied by complete accuracy: ask any fleet manager already hit with a six-figure fine.

My Fleet Solutions has the answer to help you meet your HMRC reporting guidelines. Our in-house solution, is known as MileageCount. It is a smart, automated system for recording and reporting every mile of every journey in any vehicle. Accurate, dependable, and effortless, its all-in-one software makes it easy to record, manage, process and submit mileage records for all owned, leased and “grey” vehicles used for your business.

Why use MileageCount
Every company mile matters. Estimates, mistakes, private and unrecorded journeys won’t do. You can’t afford to hope all forms are complete and accurate. And with MileageCount you don’t have to. Each mile is counted automatically and accurately, maximising savings and minimising exposure to fraud. MileageCount then makes it easy to manage all reporting, shrink expense claims, reduce fuel spend, ensure duty of care, and more.

MileageCount can save your company

Save time: Research shows 54% of drivers take over two hours to submit mileage claims every month. 10% take over eight hours! That time spent filling out forms means time lost working. MileageCount makes it easy for drivers to record and submit their business mileage, and easy for fleet managers to check and approve their mileage claims.

Save money: Saving admin time saves money, reporting with accuracy avoids costly over-estimations, and clear data helps identify ways to streamline operations. Our research figures show that MileageCount can reduce business mileage claims by up to 21%. And businesses can start counting the savings as soon as it’s implemented, from as little as £3.50 per month per driver.

Save worry: HMRC requires complete, accurate mileage reporting. Every journey incorrectly reported and mile over claimed isn’t just unnecessary expense, it risks HMRC investigation. If HMRC find your records are inaccurate, fines can date back years. MileageCount could help you avoid all fines related to mileage records. Developed in conjunction with Big 4 accountancy expertise, it’s the easiest way to ensure compliance through accuracy.

Save more: Legislation governing vehicles and drivers also requires you to stay on top of servicing, licences, tax and insurance. MileageCount saves you from all these administration headaches too, and also helps you manage all your Duty of Care requirements with ease.

MileageCount offers 5 Solutions

Whatever type or size of vehicles your business uses, MileageCount gives you five vehicle management solutions in one simple system.

  1. Mileage capture and reporting Accurately and automatically records and uploads every mile, distinguishing between business and private trips, with nothing for your drivers to do.
  2. Finance and tax service Our tax calculator helps you work out how much your business could save on business mileage payments, and integrates seamlessly with accountancy software.
  3. Duty of care compliance Audits your current duty of care provision and helps you comply with all health, safety, emissions and training regulations to help protect each driver.
  4. Fleet cost control In addition to shrinking mileage expense claims by up to 21%, MileageCount can reduce your company’s fuel spend from as little as £3.50 per driver per day.
  5. Grey fleet management Take control of managing drivers who use a private vehicle for business: record mileage, stay compliant, issue fuel cards, and reduce admin, expenses and tax.

Customise your MileageCount system

  • iBeacon is a small device, placed anywhere in the vehicle, that links to the driver’s smartphone and automates the recording of each journey from start to finish – separating personal from business trips. Drivers don’t even need to switch the app on! The app then integrates with MileageCount software for simple, precise and paperless mileage analysis that meets HMRC guidelines.
  • Smartphone App A simple smartphone app for drivers, enabling them to capture journey mileages manually using their Apple or Android phone’s built-in GPS. Then drivers simply upload their recorded journeys straight from their smartphone into your MileageCount system.
  • GPS Dongle To make mileage recording even easier, we offer USB powered GPS dongles that automatically capture each journey, accurate to 10 metres. Journeys can then be uploaded at regular intervals using our free software which inputs them automatically into the driver’s MileageCount online login, where they can be allocated as business or private.

  1. Choose your mileage capture solution
  2. Record mileage from all drivers
  3. Upload and complete claim
