Film highlights van driver dangers
The insurance giant AXA has produced a short online film which highlights some of the specific road safety issues and other threats experienced by van drivers.
AXA says the film is a follow up to a report focusing on van drivers, which was published earlier this year by Road Safety Analysis in partnership with AXA Business Insurance.
The three-minute film, titled ‘A Day in the Life of the Unluckiest Van’, uses a humorous approach to highlight dangers including tailgating, reversing and tiredness.
The film explains that van drivers are 47% more likely to crash as a result of tailgating, 142% more likely to crash while reversing, and 23% more likely to crash as a result of driving while tired.
