Winning Driver Profile For July – James Clements from Northumberland County Council

What impact has Lightfoot had on the way you drive?

Basically, because you accelerate more smoothly, it helps you drive more smoothly. It’s a device I certainly have no objections to.

Did you find it hard to get used to?

Not really, it’s just something that sticks and helps you with smoother driving.

What would you say to encourage another driver to have Lightfoot?

I would say that it unquestionably improves your driving and it makes you a less aggressive driver.

Is it something you would like in your own car?

It’s something that certainly wouldn’t hurt if you had it in your car. It definitely assists with keeping a nice smooth speed and that obviously helps with reducing fuel consumption.

What vehicle do you drive at work?

Currently a transit van, but I also drive a gritter – obviously that doesn’t have a Lightfoot, though!

What is the best thing about driving a lot in your job?

You get to see a lot of the countryside, which is definitely a perk. I only really drive around the countryside so I’m quite lucky.
