The White Van Man - Infographic

By Admin, 09 May 2017

They're a staple of the UK's road network but, for many, they are seen as a bit of a nuisance. However, is this really a fair view of a road user which not only delivers many vital necessities to consumers, but also serves as the backbone of the motoring economy?

After researching government statistics, as well as research from top insurance companies, LeaseVan has created an infographic designed to quash the negative stereotypes surrounding the white van, and bring to the surface statistics which shine a new light onto the subject.

The infographic also uncovers several interesting facts about the white van man, for example.

  • If you parked all the vans in the UK end-to-end, they would stretch 28 times the length of the A1.
  • Vans account for 44.9% of traffic in the UK.
  • The term ‘White Van Man’ was first used in the press by the Sunday Times back in 1997 by transport editor Jonathan Leake.
  • Figures reveal the number of vans on UK roads has passed 4 million for the first time
  • More than one in 20 owners of white vans confessed to enjoying a romantic encounter inside their vehicle.
