Don’t Let the Heat Get to You!
29/07/2014

The school summer holidays have begun, we’re having a British heat wave and as drivers struggle to get from A to B on hot, congested roads its important to keep your cool behind the wheel.

According to Jonathan Mosley, director of sales and marketing at E-Training World, frustration with other drivers can shift up a gear when the temperatures are hot and roads are busy, causing some company vehicle drivers to become impatient and angry.

That’s when very avoidable accidents occur, and at-work drivers should allow plenty of time for their journeys and avoid the obvious congestion hot spots and peak times.

“We’ve said many times that cars, vans and trucks do not have accidents – drivers do,” said Jonathan. “And amongst the holiday traffic there can be a lot of stressed, at-work drivers on our roads attempting to get to meetings and make deliveries as normal, only finding themselves stuck in traffic with travel times extended well beyond the norm.

“This leads to frustration, impatience, aggressive driving and ultimately accidents – all of which are completely unnecessary if drivers accept the unique circumstances for the coming weeks, plan their schedules to avoid peak times and remain calm.”

E-Training World offers an e-driver training module on the topic of ‘road rage’, as well as online driver training modules on a whole host of other topics too.

“Improving driving standards is as much to do with improving attitude as it is to do with driving ability,” said Jonathan. “And if our road rage e-module means drivers remain cool in the heat of the moment and avoid having an accident it will have been worthwhile.”
