Chauffeurs Frightful Sight

Believe it or not, over a third of London drivers failed a vision screening test, meaning they are possibly endangering their own lives as well as those of other drivers and pedestrians.

These startling statistics came to light during a random check of driversí eyesight by ĎSpecsaversí at a recent Drive Safe road-show at Olympia. Of the 500 people checked, more than one third are falling way short of the legal minimum legal requirements set by the Department of Transport and Police Force.

The results show that a significant number of Londonís drivers are worryingly unsafe. Being perceptive and alert as a driver, especially in a congested city such as London is crucial, so it is vital that drivers have their eyes examined regularly to ensure they are not putting themselves, or anyone else, at risk. Unfortunately, many drivers are unaware that their poor vision could be adversely affecting their driving and their safety on Londonís busy roads.
Despite their failing sight, an astonishing 92% of those drivers surveyed thought that regular eye examinations should be compulsory at least every three years. Furthermore, 89% said they would consider regular sight checks if it positively influenced the cost of their car insurance.

Unfortunately, news stories of road incidents involving limo hire chauffers have become too common. Is their eyesight an issue? Should some of them be wearing glasses? Unless your chauffer was using a white cane, you probably never had a reason to worry about their eyesight. However, as the recent survey shows, some things canít be taken for granted. 

When you hire a limo, your chauffer is responsible for passenger safety. With HireLimos you donít need to start worrying about limo hire safety and your chaufferís ability to drive safely. Legally the modern day UK chauffeur has to posses a valid driving licence and hold a PCO licence; this means passing a medical examination and having a clean Police security check. These are the minimum requirements for a chauffeur position. At HireLimos we go the extra mile to ensure that your chauffeur is polite, courteous and punctual, and above all is someone trustworthy.
