It's been said that eco driving training courses not only help businesses and individuals to reduce fuel consumption, it also leads to a significant reduction in emissions and fuel costs.  Training drivers to brake earlier and softer, accelerate more gently and to generally drive at moderate speeds has been discovered to be a predictor of lower collision risk.  Research into driving style and fuel consumption and emissions has proved that acceleration, speed change, braking, delayed gear changing from second to third and an engine speed above 3500 revs per minute are all factors in increased...

What is “eco driving”?  That's the term used to describe using vehicles in an energy efficient manner in order to reduce fuel consumption during road transport so that less fuel is used to travel over a set distance.  Although engine technology in recent years has improved rapidly, most drivers have not adapted their driving style to make the most effective use of this.  Eco driving techniques suit modern engines better and will bring benefits such as a reduction in emissions, a saving in fuel costs and enhanced comfort and safety.  Here at Interactive Communications we've created a vehicle...
Vehicle cameras seem to be all the rage these days, probably because a car dash cam is an irrefutable witness in the event of a road collision and can “prove” exactly who did what and when.  A dash cam is a vehicle video recorder - a digital camera positioned on the vehicle's windscreen that captures everything that takes place during the entire journey.   The camera will automatically switch on when the car starts and will begin saving data immediately. The advantages of installing a dash cam speak for themselves, especially for fleet owners.  We all want our own cars to remain in top...
