Welcome to the Lightfoot App.

Lightfoot helps drivers use less fuel, reduce harmful emissions and stay safe every time they drive.

And because better driving is good for all of us, Lightfoot rewards its drivers with loads of additional goodies like prizes, cash giveaways and more.

- Win cash prizes through The Drivers’ Lottery
- Track your score and other driving performance data
- Create and join leagues
- Check your vehicle health and battery data

Promotes a poor driving style

Lightfoot is used by the company I work for. It is purely to raise mpg for the company and nothing else. It promotes a poor driving style which doesn’t allow acceleration to join,say, a dual carriage way as the acceleration required to get up to speed triggers the amber lights and that knocks your marks down. The expectancy to join a 60/70 mph road at potentially 30 mph and accelerate at such a slow rate is simply dangerous. As a retired advanced police driver I can only say that the driving style required goes completely against the grain and is a hazard to other road users. The app itself is ok,it works and shows how a bad Lightfoot driving style has given you a high percentage and deems you an elite driver (which you definitively are not driving this way) but quite why the use of Lightfoot is deemed an appropriate tool for drivers is beyond me.

Dangerous

As a fuel saving device in urban areas it is excellent however it does not promote safer driving. Driving a slow moving fully laden vehicle in urban areas your not driving more than 20mph anyway.
If your route is predominantly motorways and duel carriageways you have no hope of achieving a good score. In order to maintain elite driving status you are entering motorways and dual carriageways at very slow and dangerous speeds. Not all slip roads are long enough to build up speed in a restricted vehicle. As well as this when you have to accelerate to enter high speed roads the box tells you off right when you are joining the road which is very distracting. I found myself very distracted by the lights on the dash. I think you need to rethink this system.

Hello,



Lightfoot is not based on your speed, but how efficiently you get to that speed. However, there are times when driving inefficiently is always going to be necessary - such as joining fast-moving traffic. This is why you only need to reach 85% to achieve Elite Driver status, there's plenty of scope to go into the amber/red and even get a few penalties if you need to. Ultimately, Lightfoot is there to help you make informed decisions about your driving so you can adopt a more efficient style whenever it's safe to do so.



The device should be situated just outside of your line of vision, so you're able to glance at it like you would your speedometer without it being a distraction

App doesn’t work

I don’t know wether people have been told to say this app works well.

The fact is it doesn’t.
Can’t load up previous journeys nor see how many people are in the fleet and groups. The prizes are rubbish our company ( a large retailer) has installed this to make us safer drivers or more efficient ones apparently? There are other ways of doing this tbh but that’s another story.

When using the light box while driving it’s just interested in how much you rev, which is fine if your runs are mostly round 20mph areas. Yes in the pamphlet it says it takes in to account when joining motorways or having to accelerate when using a roundabout or getting out of a busy junction. But do this 3 times on a leg, your score takes a hit.

In all honesty it’s just a cheap way for a company to say they are going green. And probably is a backdoor for company to get data on how to automate deliveries in the future.

The only way for more efficient driving is to invest in more eco vans ie stop/start, hybrid or electric vehicles

Shame you can’t mark it as unsafe
That’s my personal opinion.
