Fleet input needed for telematics research

The BVRLA has been working closely with the Joint Air Quality Unit (JAQU) and is currently engaging with JAQU to test the centralised payment portal and fleet vehicle checker, which has been developed to enable fleets to pay for entry to local Clean Air Zones (CAZs).

The BVRLA is still concerned about the lack of autopay functionality and the fact that the payment in arrears option cannot be extended from 6 to 7 days. This will create more of an administrative burden for those with large fleets, who will need to pay within this timeframe or face a penalty charge.   

Considering these concerns, JAQU wants to investigate whether telematics could offer a solution and is keen to learn more about how these systems are used, particularly geofencing and notification systems. JAQU is asking BVRLA members to complete a short survey to help gain a better understanding.  

The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete and will close on Tuesday 13 October.
