Recent global events have changed the way we look at vehicle use in and around crowded places. Pedestrian safety is now more important than ever, and a real concern for many sectors such as arenas, sports venues, major events and commercial centres to name a few.
To help tackle this growing threat the UK Government has released new helpful guidelines on safety in crowded places, in which vehicles (especially large and heavy transport and goods vehicles) are identified as a high-risk area. This new highly beneficial document, provides advice and guidance to those charged with security and facilities management at crowded places and helps them identify risks and manage the threat.
Familiarising yourself with these recently released guidelines is essential for anyone operating in areas where crowds of people can be found. We have included a link to download this document here
At Carryway we are smarter service vehicle providers, and supply a range of UK facilities, events and venues including, national exhibition centres, major racecourses, premiership football stadiums, National Trust venues and leading commerce centres.
Working in partnership with clients from the above sectors we have found low-speed electric vehicles offer a number of key benefits to assist in tackling both the safety and access concerns now faced by many venues and facilities.
Safer Vehicles Solutions:
Compact low speed vehicles, are considerably safer for pedestrians thanks to their low curb weights (often between 300-700kg), low speeds (Max 25mph) and even engineered or GPS driven speed and access limitations.
Access in and around many crowded areas has been severely restricted in order to keep pedestrians safe. However, this has also led to problems in reaching areas close to structural centres with vitally required mobile services including disabled transportation, medical emergency assistance and vital refuse or facility maintenance vehicles.
Compact, low speed vehicles have proved to offer a solution. These types of vehicles are able to traverse the access restrictions put in place to shield crowded areas from powerful heavy vehicles, whilst still addressing the functional needs of the site.

The Carryway buggy was a lifesaver – and that’s no exaggeration! We were racing in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, which is a 45 mins support race just before the start for the big 24hr race. Our garages were about 2km away so getting all our gear to/from the pitlane for the race was made so simple because of the buggy! And it would have taken (the team) ages to get there and back! We are enormously proud of our new buggy and the livery made for it. It helps us stand out and helps raise our profile, not to mention being an essential team donkey.”
Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.
Our open day event is a very important day for us, and it makes life much easier to have a relationship with a company (Carryway) that we can rely on each year.
Carryway are always a pleasure to deal with and their drivers are always friendly and professional. It takes a little bit of worry out of my job knowing that I can rely on your good service.
Many thanks to the team, especially Adam who was friendly, helpful and professional.
Our guests have high expectations when they come to golf at Gleneagles, and the classic aesthetics and high quality finish on the Club Car vehicles have met their needs perfectly.
The GPS system in particular has been very popular – in addition to providing course information, it even allows golfers to email themselves their score card to review at home.
It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.
We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
