10 August 2009

For over ten years SURVIVE has been promoting the safe use of the motorway hard shoulder and has just released 'Best Practice Guidelines’ designed to promulgate a consistent and safe approach by all Road Recovery Operators and technicians when dealing with vehicle breakdowns / removals on motorways and high speed dual carriageways.

The guidelines can be found on the Survive Group website.

SURVIVE is a partnership between the Highways Agency, the Association of Chief Police Officers, the breakdown/recovery industry and other road service providers. The SURVIVE Group has been established to improve the safety of those who work on the road network and the travelling public and is also dedicated to the promotion of driving safety.
