Run a half marathon and raise money for Transaid

 

Proman is looking to put together a team of 50 runners to partake in the Royal Parks Half Marathon, helping to raise money for Transaid.

The sold-out event, which takes place on 13 October, crosses four of the capital’s royal parks.

Transaid helps to transform lives within sub-Saharan Africa, improving road safety and access to healthcare, alongside the belief that no driver should have to worry about not returning home due to lack of training and dangerous roads.

Those within the logistics industry place Transaid close to their hearts as they recognise and relate to the trials and tribulations facing hauliers all over the world.

Registrations close on the 15 May, and for more information contact liz.atkinson@proman-uk.com 07734 928126 or tony@transaid.org 020 7387 8136

With just DAF Trucks and MAN Truck & Bus as the only manufacturers exhibiting at thir year's CV Show, Commercial Motor editor Will Shiers explains why everyone - especially all the truck manufacturers - should be at the show.

Dutch-spec low roof trucks, like this DAF XF Comfort Cab, are undergoing a resurgence. We look at the case, for owning this special order DAF truck. Would you give up the room of a DAF XF SuperSpace cab for one of these, or would you upgrade from a DAF CF into a full-width cab but still with a low-roof? :

Vision Track's anti distraction system monitors driver behaviour to deter bad habits while driving. The in-cab system looks for tired or distracted drivers and can identify mobile phone use behind the wheel, smoking in the vehicle and it can even tell if you're texting. Reports and alerts can also be sent directly to the fleet manager to help improve driving standards:

An increase in the number of hybrid and electric vehicles on the roads increases the risk of pedestrians and other vulnerable road users not hearing their apporach.
