We were invited to take part in Peugeot’s Surround Rear Vision Tradesman Challenge so we took Robin and ‘Little Hand’ Jubi along to make up the Chippie Team and go up against the Plumber Team including James Lawrence from Plumberparts and Phil Rawlingson, and the other team was the sparks with the pairing of Joe Amps and AJ Cookson.
Dodging bricks, pallets and woodpiles, and executing difficult parking manoeuvres, the Electricians came out on top, after safely navigating the course in the quickest time of 4m 49s after penalty deductions.
Peugeot’s Surround Rear Vision technology has been developed to increase all-round visibility to reduce parking and reversing accidents. Using cameras to monitor the van’s surroundings, with a video feed displayed to the driver, the technology gives drivers a wider field of vision compared to standard side-mirrors.
Research from the Department for Transport shows reversing and parking remains an on-going issue for van drivers, with 1,152 parking and reversing accidents reported in 2017. These accounted for nearly 10% of all light goods vehicle accidents for the year.
The time spent away from work is compounded by costly repairs. The Association for British Insurers previously estimated average vehicle repair costs in the UK have risen by more than a third since 2013, with the average repair bill following an accident at £2,137.
David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, said: “Today was about having a little fun with our all-new Partner van and its technology, but also highlighting a crucial safety innovation”.
