Mercedes-Benz publishes van driver safety guide

Mercedes-Benz Vans has launched a free Driver Safety Guide to support van drivers throughout the winter months.

Available from any Mercedes-Benz van dealer, or free to download from www.mbvans.co.uk/industryinsight, the Driver Safety Guide offers guidance and tips on maintenance and driving during the winter period, with a handy wallet-sized card to keep with a reminder of the MobiloVan free roadside assistance cover contact numbers in the event of a breakdown or accident. 

Steve Bridge, managing director, Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: “We are passionate about safety, which is why our vans are cited as some of the safest on the road thanks to their innovative technology.

“However, a vehicle is only ever as good as its driver, so we believe driver education is vital. This is specifically why we created our Industry Insight series, so that we can share knowledge and best practice.

“A responsible driver will also aid in reducing vehicle downtime, which is another major focus for us. This is vital from a commercial perspective - a van can only earn its keep when it’s out there moving on the road!

“I’m very proud to be launching the Mercedes-Benz Vans Driver Safety Guide, and although it contains MobiloVan information, which is specific for our customers, any van driver can benefit from the content, so I am especially pleased it is free and open for anyone to download.”

    This is a wonderful initiative - which I'm sure will encourage better winter-awareness.
