I served thirty-one years with Cumbria Constabulary, the last twelve as a Traffic Sergeant.
During this time I drove both patrol cars and Police motorcycles and was involved in Bikesafe both locally and as the North West Regional Chairman.
I was involved in many road safety initiatives and unfortunately I saw first hand on many occasions the devastation caused to families by fatal collisions involving both cars and bikes.
Experience shows that any training done to improve your driving or riding can only benefit you as a road user as well as having an effect on other road users. Advanced Driver and Advanced Rider Courses available through IAM RoadSmart provide access to expert coaching that will help you to achieve this improvement and make a difference. I am now an IAM RoadSmart Examiner for both Cars and Bikes.
