We make better drivers and riders

Research & policy

IAM RoadSmart makes a valuable contribution to the road risk debate. We produce a range of policy and research documents on topics key to the conversation, such as drink-driving, speed cameras, motorway speed limits, motorcycling and mature drivers.
We inform and influence to ensure road safety remains a policy and investment priority. Those who listen to our views include government and key decision makers.

IAM RoadSmart often gives evidence to governmental bodies, including the Transport Select Committee. Our staff also provide expert input and analysis on key committees at Highways England, Road Safety Scotland, Transport Focus and PACTS (Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety). We also contribute to the international road safety debate as members of the Mobility division of the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA).

Safer Road Users

This simulator study clearly shows that using a

smartphone to access social networking sites is dangerous.

IAM RoadSmart believes that all drivers should be aware of the risks

they are taking when using any mobile whilst driving. Even

drivers who refrain from making calls may be tempted to use

a smartphone to check a message, map, update their status,

or look for traffic updates. More needs to be done to educate

drivers, and encourage safe behaviour.
