VEHICLE leasing and fleet management company Arval has joined Wiltshire’s Safe Drive Stay Alive partnership as a corporate sponsor.

Arval, based in Swindon, has an established commitment to supporting road safety initiatives.

Safe Drive Stay Alive is a Wiltshire and Swindon road safety initiative co-ordinated by Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service on behalf of a partnership including Wiltshire Police, SWIFT Medics, Wiltshire Council and Swindon Borough Council.

Its primary aim is to deliver a hard-hitting road safety presentation to Year 11 students across Wiltshire and Swindon every year, but the roadshow is also taken to other audiences, including the military and business drivers.

Ian Hopkins, road safety development manager at Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service, said: “We’ve been working with Arval for a number of years now, and we are delighted to welcome them on board as a formal partner. Safe Drive is a proven campaign, well received by those who see the presentations, and we are grateful to Arval for supporting us in this way.”
