Driving efficiently means to drive fast but safely
Fire brigades, ambulance and police services have high demands on their drivers. They need to quickly and safely reach their destination every time. To train this in an efficent way we have, in collaberation with the ambulances service of Skaraborg county developed the Road safety Trainer. Here we focus on minimizing the drivers’ risk-taking and thus reducing the number of accidents. In the theoretical part of our training, the drivers learn risk assessment and how to increase the average speed and safety by planning their driving. This is followed by driver training in the Road Safety Trainer. Everyone takes on progressively harder exercises at their own pace. The drivers also get the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned by competing against each other. With the help of this equipment the course participants undertake practical driving exercises in a variety of situations. All drivers are followed individually which makes it possible to compare the results and follow the development of each one of them. Our customers have documented examples of how the course drastically has reduced damages.

We see a clear difference in the driving behaviour of the drivers who have undergone training with the Eco2Trainer, compared to our other drivers.
