The Mini Coyote V2 Speed Camera Alert System

Two years on from the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act, are small businesses being forced to spend too much to look after their employees? The Mini Coyote V2 speed camera alert system from Coyote may hold the answer.

Complying with legislation can put a real strain on small and medium-sized companies, particularly those that require employees to drive thousands of miles per year for business purposes. A device such as the Mini Coyote V2, which alerts drivers, in real time, to variations in speed limits on all roads across 28 European countries, as well as warning drivers of high risk zones and fixed and mobile speed camera locations, can lessen the financial burden of compliance and ease the strain between employers and employees over 'Big Brother' technology.

With a quarter of all vehicle miles on Britain's roads being driven by business motorists - often on unfamiliar roads - and around 200 road deaths and serious injuries a week involving someone driving for work, there is clearly room for businesses to improve safety and cut down on fuel costs at the same time. The Mini Coyote V2 will display a vehicle's GPS-linked speed and inform the driver of the speed limit at all times and costs just £185.

Andrew Smith, Managing Director of Coyote's UK distributor Cobra UK says: "Fleets need to look at driver behaviour and this is where the Mini Coyote V2 can really help companies to meet Duty of Care obligations.

"A careful driver with a Mini Coyote V2 on his dashboard will be aware of their GPS-calculated speed and alerted when approaching high-risk zones. This information is vital, particularly for those employees who drive on unfamiliar roads every day. The system can help employees keep their licence and in turn save a company time and money."

Managing driver behaviour is key for fleets to meet their Duty of Care obligations and SMEs in particular need to ensure employees on business are educated on the consequences of their driving behaviour. The Mini Coyote V2 could help companies of all sizes fulfil their "Driving for Work" Duty of Care responsibilities without adopting a "Big Brother" approach.
