Loving your van means taking care of it.

AXA Business Insurance has highlighted the fact that van drivers are nearly 50% more likely than other motorists to suffer accidents caused by tailgating. These figures where extracted from Police statistics

We, as van dealers feel the urge to evoke this fact and try to tackle at our scale dangerous behaviour. We understand our clients may be in a rush however it is ridiculous to risk their lives and others'.

Tailgating is often caused by rush and speed, therefore we've put together a table of the time gained increasing your speed 

WE HAVE CALCULATED THESE TIME DIFFERENCES ON A 50-MILE JOURNEY

As you can see being 20 miles faster than the speed limit on the motorway will only shorten your journey by 9 minutes and 31 seconds. Quite a short time to strike a deal... and if you have an accident you will for sure arrive late, so leave earlier and drive safer!
