2 min to readDriver safety
You’ve probably heard of the ‘grey fleet’, which covers the vehicles used for business-related journeys that belong to the driver rather than the employer. But do you know how large it is? Research suggests it accounts for 40% of all the vehicles in the UK – around 14 million in total – and covers 12 billion business miles each year.
