Lightfoot's Driver of The Month - October

WINNING DRIVER PROFILE FOR SEPTEMBER - SIMON FROM POLYGON

Dream job (if you couldn’t do your current one, obviously!)?

It’d definitely be to run a bar or B&B in Spain. We go there a lot and I can just see us easily living there.

What would you say to encourage another driver or company to use Lightfoot?

It’s great the way Lightfoot helps you think differently so you are more aware of your surroundings, as well as the fuel savings.

Tell us something not many people know about you.

I once had trials for the British Swimming Team. My son is a little fish - just like me - so maybe he’ll go all the way.

How would you say that Lightfoot has changed your driving?

It makes you a lot more aware... When pulling out of a junction, you think about whether Lightfoot will tell you off for accelerating too quickly before a car comes. The result is that you’re a lot safer, all from not accelerating or braking too harshly.

What impact has Lightfoot had on the way your colleagues drive?

It’s worked well because it saves fuel and it’s quite fun to have the friendly rivalry with them all. So we’ve all been wanting to do well.

What does your wife make of your driving?

Before I had a Lightfoot, she’d say that I was heavy footed and quite erratic and she’d definitely say that that’s improved now.

Lightfoot has a voice that comes on now and again. If you could choose the voice, who would you choose?

Morgan Freeman!

Favourite subject at school?

I really liked languages; French or Spanish were my favourites.

Lightfoot is launching a consumer product – is this something you’d like to purchase?

Yes. It would be a great benefit for my daughter too who has just started driving. It’s better than a black box because as well as the insurance savings, you learn how to be a better driver.
