Dedicated to saving lives
With road safety being a major contributing factor to many of the products and services we offer, MiX Telematics is a proud corporate sponsor of Brake, a road safety charity in the UK. Our aim, since the start of our involvement six years ago, has always been to support the charity financially as well as to demonstrate our appreciation for the important work they carry out. In 2014, MiX Telematics entered the Brake Fleet Safety Awards and were delighted to win two awards, one for ‘Product’ and the other for ‘Innovation’.
Our contact at Brake, Sarah Jane Martin, says, "MiX Telematics has supported Brake for over six years, donating more than £30,000 to the charity. Our library of professional resources has been boosted by MiX Telematics' sponsorship, which includes a poster aimed at fleet drivers on the benefits of using telematics as well as a fleet manager guidance report on managing speed in fleets."
Brake is a national road safety charity, which exists to stop the needless deaths and serious injuries that happen on the roads every day. The charity promotes road safety awareness, safe and sustainable road use, and effective road safety policies through national campaigns, community education, and services for road safety professionals and employers.
This year, MiX will once again be supporting the Brake Road Safety Week, running from 23 to 29 November. Our participation includes a seminar on eco-driving, where we look forward to sharing details about planning and implementing effective procedures. Eco-driving not only delivers safety benefits, but provides economic and environmental gains, too. Further details on the event, including how to participate, will be posted on our website soon.
