A new road safety manager has been appointed to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, a charity at the forefront of promoting safety over the UK and the rest of the world. Nick Lloyds has been appointed to the new role and brings 25 years of road safety experience to the position. Mr Lloyds previously worked as head of road safety for Staffordshire County Council and as a road safety practitioner for Stoke City Council beforehand. The new position with RoSPA focuses on developing, maintaining and promoting the charity’s road safety policies. Mr Lloyd has stated that he is looking forward to working for the UK’s leading road safety charity and, in particular, is hoping to focus on developing its road safety policies in order to make a difference on England’s roads.
The charity has run a number of campaigns giving advice on various safety measures and its recent road safety campaign puts the focus on young drivers. A number of workshops are held to promote road safety t young drivers who may feel under pressure to drive recklessly by their friends. In addition, the charity runs a number of workshops to educate drivers about safe road use including hazard awareness training, advanced driving techniques and fleet driver courses.
The importance of implementing change
Appointing a new road safety manager may help to bring a fresh eye to road safety measures and may help to implement changes where necessary in order to lower accident rates. Charities like RoSPA help to promote road safety by use of educational workshops and training but there are still many drivers who do not pay enough attention to the training available. Accidents could be caused on the road by those who do not take road safety seriously and injuries could be the result. If you have been injured or seriously injured in a road traffic accident that was someone else’s fault, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make a compensation claim for your suffering.
