Release Date: 
20/03/2018

The BVRLA and its members are supporting the new national ACT campaign (Action Counters Terrorism), which aims to raise awareness of the different methods of attack planning and encourage the reporting of suspicious behaviour.

Last year saw a spate of terrorist attacks where rental vehicles were used as ramming weapons to cause death and destruction in the UK and around the world. Since then, the BVRLA and its members have been working closely and more frequently with law enforcement organisations and government to identify and agree tactics to counter the terrorist risk.

The BVRLA is encouraging all those operating in the sector to support the ACT campaign to help increase awareness and vigilance amongst employees and customers of the vehicle rental sector.

BVRLA Director of Member Services Nora Leggett said, “We hope that members will join us in promoting the ACT logo on their websites and displaying the posters in their workplaces as we present a united front in the fight against terrorism.”

The BVRLA has today issued a press release, which can be read in full here.

Members can access ACT campaign material and other useful tools and resources here on the BVRLA Vehicles and Terrorism guidance page.
