IAM and AA Motoring Trust combine to form new road safety organisation
RoadSafe welcomes the new IAM Motoring Trust, as a member. The new, independent road safety organisation will be the research and advocacy arm of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM and will be taking forward the work of the AA Motoring Trust, which ceased operating on 31 December 2006. As part of the IAM charity, the IAM Motoring Trust has funding in place for an ambitious 5-year programme of safety and transport policy research aimed at protecting and promoting the interests of all road users.
The trust intends intends to contribute vigorously to the national transport policy debate and to be a genuinely independent voice for responsible motoring, motorcycling and the safety needs of all road users.
Meanwhile the AA is creating a new Public Affairs team under the leadership of Paul Watters who is already a familiar face in the motoring affairs arena. Andrew Howard MBE, one of Britain’s foremost road safety experts, will be part of the team as Head of Road Safety.
