Fleet Gets Black Boxes

Fleet Gets Black Boxes

‘Black box’ technology has been fitted to almost 50 vans and lorries in the NHS Forth Valley fleet in a bid to encourage safer driving and greater fuel efficiency.

The units are able to read information about driving speeds, braking and cornering which it is hoped will also cut down fuel usage.

Gerald Ferrie, NHS Forth Valley’s Transport and Waste Manager said: “This is one of a number of ways we are trying to be green as well as increasing safety for our staff whilst they are out on the road. It’s also one of a number of initiatives by the Transport Department to encourage better driving by offering fuel efficient driver training courses.”
