Lightfoot's Fleet Driver of the Month is an exciting new initiative where, for the first time, better fleet drivers are being recognised and rewarded with a series of prizes, including weekend breaks, spa visits and supercar track days.
How long have you been working with Country Fare?
About 2 months.
What areas of the country do you drive in?
I always go around the Sandbanks area - Poole Quay, for instance.
What’s the worst thing about doing a lot of driving in your job?
I get a sore back - my driving posture isn’t great!
Do you have a favourite drive?
Sandbanks and The New Forest - I live in New Milton so I am always in that area.
What would be your dream job?
Managing my own tree surgery business - I’d like to be the boss.
Tell us something a few people know.
No one at work knows that I am in a band, playing guitar and piano.
Did Lightfoot surprise you with the way it works?
Yes, it just makes you aware of how you are actually driving - especially when it talks to you!
If you could choose the voice of your Lightfoot, who would it be?
It’s got to be Morgan Freeman!
What would you say to encourage another driver or company to use Lightfoot?
I would definitely recommend it if there is a company that doesn’t use Lightfoot - especially for the bosses. My manager loves it because it monitors your driving but you still get warnings before the penalties, so it doesn’t report on every little incident.
We are launching a consumer product - is this something you would think about purchasing?
I definitely would. It really helps with my driving and I would recommend it.
"We’re happy our drivers can now be rewarded for safer, more efficient behaviour on the road. The FDOTW initiative is engaging and it’s proving to be great motivation for our drivers."
