Driving style: ‘undeniable solution to pollution’06 December 2016
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is calling on commercial and public sector organisations to do more to encourage better driving styles, leading to lower vehicle emissions.
Telematics business Lightfoot agrees, and says changing driver behaviour is the most realistic and effective way to quickly cut pollution.
Mark Roberts, Lightfoot’s managing director, says: “Lightfoot’s real-time, visual and audio alert system automatically guides drivers to stay within the most efficient ‘sweet spot’ of their engine, delivering precisely what NICE is calling on businesses and transport services to achieve – smoother driving styles without unnecessary acceleration, harsh breaking or idling.” NICE is also recommending new 20mph zones in urban areas, an expansion of the congestion charge scheme in city centres, a ban on new speed bumps, and measures to encourage housebuilders to put living rooms at the rear of houses when they are located by main roads.
He adds: “The NICE guidelines cast a light on the exact issue Lightfoot is blazing a trail on. Smoother driving is now an undeniable solution to pollution.”
