Allianz has updated its whitepaper from 2014, providing an overview of driving offences, including drug driving, and the respective sentences, the impact on the driving at work policies, and risk management for those involved in the running of commercial motor fleets.
Tough penalties including large fines, driving bans and imprisonment are in place for those found guilty of dangerous and careless driving. With the Government set to take an even tougher stance by increasing the maximum sentence from 14 years to life imprisonment, organisations should have adequate procedures and policies in place to ensure that employees required to drive on business do so safely and legally.
This whitepaper includes commentary and case studies on the various issues, including:
• A summary of driving offences.
• Sentencing guidelines.
• Impact on the employer.
• Fleet risk management guidance.
