Mercedes-Benz Vans has launched a free driver safety guide to support motorists during the winter.

The guide offers tips on maintenance and driving during the winter period, as well as a wallet-sized card with MobiloVan roadside assistance contact numbers in the event of a breakdown or accident.

It is available for free from any Mercedes dealer, and can also be downloaded here.

“A vehicle is only ever as good as its driver, so we believe driver education is vital,” said Steve Bridge, managing director of Mercedes-Benz Vans.

“A responsible driver will also aid in reducing vehicle downtime, which is another major focus for us. This is vital from a commercial perspective – a van can only earn its keep when it’s out there moving on the road,” he added.

“Although it contains MobiloVan information, which is specific for our customers, any van driver can benefit from the content, so I am especially pleased it is free and open for anyone to download.”
