Both companies are united in their commitment to promoting road safety through a ‘one road to safety campaign’. The One Road to Safety initiative targets the behaviours of vehicle drivers and passengers alike. The drivers are going through an assessed defensive driver training course to increase road safety awareness along with increased medical tests to ensure fitness to drive. Passengers meanwhile are made aware through campaigns such as wearing seatbelts, and avoiding distractions to drivers and other road users. Emrill measures its driver safety standards by monitoring the number of own fault accidents per 100,000 kilometres driven.
With 21 branches across the UAE that enable close proximity for easy reach, dedicated recovery and technical vehicles, supported by state of the art maintenance facilities, Hertz will provide Emrill with 24/7 roadside assistance for breakdowns and service queries.
