Impact Protection Vehicles (IPVs)

Impact Protection Vehicles (IPVs)

In June 2020 we bought a new Impact Protection Vehicle into the fleet, further adding to our national capability across the UK.

This latest edition carries the moniker ‘Florence Nightingale’, in honour of all NHS staff through the Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic. Can you spot her on the roads – send in your pictures if so!

‘Florence’ comes with the latest in Crash Cushion technology, the Scorpion II cushion, and we are proud to say she is only the fourth vehicle in the country to have such a cushion installed. You can head over to our Innovative Technologies page to read about the Scorpion II in more detail.
