Tracey Worth with Inst of Couriers President Lord Falkland, DFA David Higginbottom and Lord Attlee in DFA commercial driver life saving House of Commons briefing.

Transport minister John Hayes commits to save lives and join the commercial drivers who have achieved the DFA first responder course.

Tracey Worth Inst of Couriers was with David Higginbottom who showcased Driver First Assist, DFA as the solution to saving lives roadside. A commercial driver is likely first to arrive at a road traffic accident (RTA). An injured person in an RTA will die in around four minutes from a blocked airway, an ambulance arrival is likely 8 mins.

David Higginbottom detailed training to save those lives, training for commercial drivers. Dealing with blocked airways could save half the lives lost in RTAs in the UK. The full house event held in the Commons was keynote-addressed by Transport Minister, John Hayes.

It’s time to lead from the front, I as a Minister am going to find time to do the DFA 7-hour course and become a first responder, ready to save lives at the scene of a road traffic accident.

The applause was loud for the Transport Minister ready to step forward and deliver a difference for commercial drivers.
