Roslyn Cumming, professional engagement manager at Brake, said this year's conference was a big success.

Expert Opinion
The charity Brake does fantastic work to promote and campaign for improvements in road safety.

“Our cases highlight how road traffic collisions involving “professional drivers” can have huge consequences for not only victims, but also friends and family face coming to terms with losing a loved one or seeing a relative seriously injured on the roads.

“Brake’s Fleet Safety conferences highlights the importance of ensuring that companies which are on the roads so often are doing their best to keep themselves and other road users safe.”
