97 local authority road safety teams have now signed up to the Road Safety Time Bank, which enables road safety professionals to share their knowledge, experience and expertise.
Time Bank members offer their expertise in areas where they have most experience, and in return can ask for assistance on subjects offered by other members.
The Time Bank works on a ‘no-fee basis’ – whatever time members receive from others, is what they are asked to give back.
Subjects covered in the Time Bank include key areas such as young drivers, motorcyclists, drink driving, speed and seatbelts, along with topics including route studies, mobility centres and red routes.
The Road Safety Time Bank was set up by the six 2006/7 road safety Beacon authorities, but will be managed and developed by LARSOA from April 2009 onwards.
