Truck firm helps PSNI launch 'hands free' calls scheme

By John Mulgrew

A Belfast truck and trailer firm has launched a new scheme alongside the PSNI to help prevent crashes caused by drivers using mobile phones.

Hireco says it will install a 'hands free' kit into each of the units it sells or rents. The move comes after the Hireco management became increasingly concerned about the use of mobile phones by haulage drivers across the UK.

Hireco's operations director, Ricky Graham, says that illegal use of mobile phones has become a big concern to the company and to its broad range of customers.
