Road Safety Resources

At IAM RoadSmart, we aim to inform members of the motoring community, fleet managers and external organisations about the importance of road safety. 

We do this by producing different resources that inform and educate on the latest policy changes. They also offer tips, advice, and general guidance to support making the roads a safer place. On this page, you will find a variety of resources explaining different areas of road safety. This includes The Highway Code, alongside tips to help you improve your driving and riding.

“Eight years of flat lining road deaths is unacceptable. The huge gains in road safety made in the past now seem a distant memory. The government must show more leadership to really drive down road deaths in the future.”

Neil Greig, Director of Policy and Research, IAM RoadSmart

 

Road Safety Posters

Encouraging road safety is at the heart of everything we do at IAM RoadSmart.

That’s why we have created a series of posters to raise awareness of common road safety encounters you might have on the roads. These posters are designed for anybody who wants to learn more about road safety, or if you manage a team who are always out on the roads, these make a perfect resource to help them remain as safe as they can be.
