Driving for Business, the new normal
Managing Road Risk – The journey out of COVID-19
As restrictions change, will there be more vans on the road as people keep up their online shopping patterns? Will there be less traffic because people keep working from home?
The pandemic has shifted the way we all live and work in almost every sphere of industry. From how often we order takeaway to the amount of cash we carry, we, the public, have all developed new habits, and it’s crucial for businesses to move with that change.
More than a quarter of all road traffic incidents may involve somebody who is driving as part of their work at the time.

Nowhere do we see that more than every day on the roads. The way people travel has changed. Throughout the lockdowns, there have been spikes and lulls in the amount of traffic and congestion depending on school openings and work-from-home restrictions. Some habits, like walking or cycling more, seem to look like they’re going to stick.
What does that mean for businesses going forward?
Wirral Council, supported by How’s My Driving and The Road Safety Trust, are hosting a Driving For Business webinar on Wednesday 28th April to address these kinds of questions and to help businesses plan for their new normal.
