Trakm8 and Autoglass webinar to shed light on improving road safety

Trakm8 has joined forces with Autoglass to host a joint webinar for Brake’s Road Safety Week 2020.

Road Safety Week takes place this year from 16 to 22 November and will be focused on the message of ‘No Need to Speed’ to remind everyone of how the speed they travel affects other people.

The Trakm8 and Autoglass webinar will go live on Monday 16 November and will examine how technology can be used to engage motorists and improve both road safety and driver behaviour.

It will be hosted by Chris Woods, head of enterprise sales at Trakm8, Andrew Ertl, fleet manager at Autoglass and Chris Willocks, Brake’s corporate partnership manager, and will focus on key statistics and data Brake has obtained from the UK police force on road incidents this year.

Speaking ahead of the event, Chris Woods said: “Trakm8 has always been a keen supporter of Brake’s Road Safety Week and the vital work it does in saving lives on British roads. We’re delighted to be partnering with Autoglass to deliver a keynote webinar at the start of this year’s event, discussing both primary learnings from our relationship to date and the wider role technology can play in shoring-up road safety nationwide.”

The webinar extends the firms’ existing partnership. Trakm8 supplies its plug-in telematics solutions and Roadhawk-branded dash cams to fleet vehicles at Autoglass. Benefits of the partnership include a 50% reduction on idling and an increase in the average driver behaviour score per vehicle from 91% to 98%.

Chris Willocks, corporate partnership manager at Brake, said: “Road Safety Week is an annual campaign and the biggest road safety awareness event in the UK. During Road Safety Week, thousands of organisations, schools and communities take part with road safety demonstrations, events, awareness video screenings, talks and more.

“Brake appreciate the support from long-time corporate partners Autoglass and Trakm8 and look forward to taking part in their webinar, aimed at educating those driving for work of the benefits of using data to improve driving behaviours.”
