LoCITY Driver Training
As London and other urbanised areas continues to grow so does the level of everyday road congestion which directly contributes to the current air pollution problem we are facing, rapid urbanisation has meant that commercial vehicle operators within London are more responsible for this problem than ever before. Recent statistics have revealed that more than 281,000 daily journeys are freight carried out by either vans or HGV’s, accounting for 30% of the daily traffic in Central London. Transport accounts for the majority of the two major concerning emissions in London; 63% of the nitrogen dioxide and 52% of the particle matter emissions, signalling the importance of the LoCITY programme and reducing transport related emissions.
All of these statistics relate to the growing air pollution issue in urban areas which has a huge impact on public health with around 9,500 air pollution related deaths every year in London alone, indicating the seriousness of the issue that LoCITY has been pioneered to encounter.
The LoCITY programme aims to confront some of the issues that commercial vehicle operators are facing. The wider scheme helps companies by providing them with information about which low emission vehicle would be suited to their needs, as well as increasing the supply and uptake of low emission commercial vehicles and associated infrastructure such as accessible charging points, ultimately aiming to make the transition simpler for commercial vehicle operators.
The LoCITY training course is solely classroom based and is an accredited Driver CPC module as well as being approved by FORS. LoCITY course content is designed to raise drivers awareness of the current environmental situation and the impact that their vehicle has on the poor air quality, as well as how they can help to make a difference with long term behavioural change. The content covered engages drivers to consider their driving techniques, ways of improving their overall performance and other key ULEZ related information such as alternative fuel types.
