Motoring: Surf your way to safety with a GEM of an idea.
The extensive electronic resource has been s etup by road safety group the Guild of ExperiencedMotorists (GEM), and it is subscription-free w ith no form of registration required. Access to the site is via the GEM web page, www.roadsafety.org.uk, and it quickly takes the visitor to an extensive research base, developed to provide immediate information and a comprehen-sive list of links. GEM, a charity, has a membership of 60,000, and financially supports road safety initiatives.
Chief executive David Williams says the new site will provide an immense archive of thinking on road safety concerns.
``We hope that both organisations and individuals will help us by developing this site, so that it becomes a flagship resource - free to use and of real value to those trying to meet a major problem in society today,'' says Williams He added: ``Weespecially hope schools and educationalists will welcome it.'' The Police Reform Bill, speed and accidents, pedal cycle safety issues, mobile phones and driving, are just some of the topics tackled on the site.
Researchers will find the links page useful, with its range and depth of associated sites, together with a breakdown of what each has to offer. Appropriate Government departments, voluntary organisations, university and college research units, pressure groups and a wide variety of safety organisations and institutes are all listed, together with access to basic, yet sometimes neglected, information like the Highway Code.
