Benton Brothers Celebrates Centenary Anniversary Fitting

Brigade Electronics blind spot camera and monitor system was supplied by C.F Parkinson’s of Boston, the largest independent motor factor in Eastern England. The BE-300 series cameras were fitted to Benton’s new XF105 DAF truck for the benefits of safety. Placed neatly in the wind deflector on both the left and right hand side of the cab, the cameras provide a wider angle of view than existing blind spot mirrors. The VBV-750A, five inch colour monitor is integral to the dash and provides a clear picture.

Benton Brothers Driver, Gary Butler, said: “When sat in traffic or on a slip road, you can see cars on the monitor before you can see them in the mirrors. It gives a wider view than the curb mirrors and is useful on roundabouts or tight corners. I do use the monitor regularly and with the mirrors as well you have the best of both worlds and that extra peace of mind.”

The celebration truck pays tribute to John William Benton, the founder of Benton’s in 1908. Benton’s was incorporated in 1954 by his three sons Bill, Ted and George. One hundred years later grandson and Chairman, Martin Benton, oversees operations at the original site in Sibsey, near Boston in Lincolnshire and now also Immingham.

With a fleet of 150 vehicles all capable of carrying freight carriage at 44 tonnes and average annual mileage of 86000 miles, Benton Brothers Transport makes health and safety legislation first priority. Already fitting the latest mobile technology, satellite tracking, replacing vehicles every five years and employing highly efficient trained drivers, the new camera – monitor system will further increase safety. Brigade’s system increases the driver’s field of vision in areas that were previously a blind spot, providing other road users with improved safety.
