OPERATORS will soon be able to use vehicle breakdown figures for their fleets from A A/BRS Rescue.
British Road Services already records all breakdown call-out figures on the computer at its Birmingham communications centre, and is often the only source of out-of-warranty breakdown information for manufacturers whose branded vehicle rescue services also use the BRS centre.
At present, it is providing this information for individual manufacturers, but it plans soon to offer it to larger customers of the A A/BRS service.
The company insists, however, that there is no question of BRS's vehicle-operating companies being able to use other operators' information for their own commercial benefit. Only BRS breakdown information is fed back at present, and the Rescue service is now part of the membership services activities which treat BR f as much as a separate customer as any from outside.
THE GOVERNMENT is not taking up cyclists' requests for red bars to be applied to all prohibitory traffic signs. Few other road users favoured the idea, and signs will only have red outer rings.
