EUFMC 2017 Round Up

By Tamara Humpherys on June 16, 2017

As always, this year’s EUFMC was an outstanding meeting. It is the electrical utility conference to attend when it comes to addressing the specific needs of fleet managers and their operations.

Mother Nature was definitely not on our side for the Drive-Thru and equipment show on the first day -talk about a rain storm - but we all managed to wade our way through and dry off in time for the Sponsorship Recognition Dinner that evening.

In the USA alone there were 587 such deaths in 1989, 519 in 1999, and 531 in 2014, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Efforts by commercial fleets to improve vehicle safety are counteracted by more traffic and an increase in driver distraction – e.g. the use of handheld devices. It seems like people would rather scroll through their social media feed than pay attention to where they’re walking or driving.
