New Chairman to lead Institute of Advanced Motorists
The new chairman, Alistair Cheyne OBE, wants the Institute of Advanced Motorists to take the lead on driver and rider safety.
Let's hope the new Chairman will rise to the challenge and encourage drivers to improve their skills, as we have seen from the numerous Bank Holiday motorway accidents, including the seven car pile up, that bad driving is causing so many accidents, and deaths.
"Alistair Cheyne OBE, a former Deputy Managing Director of the AA, has taken over as Chairman of the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists).
On taking up his new role, Alistair said: “There is no greater contribution to road safety than helping drivers and motorbike riders to maintain and develop their road skills. And no one has a better claim than the IAM to lead the campaign for ‘safer driving and riding’.
“We have an unmatched, UK-wide pool of advanced driving groups, a respected policy and research operation and a revitalised commercial arm, providing occupational driver training to industry. They form a unique combination capable of making an outstanding and practical contribution to road safety. I see it as my job to ensure that they do just that.”
