Roadcraft handbooks updated
Two new editions of the ‘Roadcraft’ handbooks for drivers and riders, produced by the Police Federation and published on its behalf by TSO, will be published this month.
The new edition of ‘Roadcraft: The Police Driver’s Handbook’ was published on 19 August, and ‘Motorcycle Roadcraft: The Police Rider’s Handbook’ will be published on 27 August.
The Roadcraft reference publications - developed in consultation with the police, other emergency services and driving instructors - provide guidance on becoming a better driver or rider.
They are used by driving and riding instructors, advanced driving and riding organisations and the emergency services to help road users become safer and more skilful in the most demanding situations.
John Graham, director of the Police Foundation, said: “These books are recognised as providing the very best in driver and rider training and are a must-read for anyone who wants to improve their driving or riding.
“Prepared through extensive consultation with experts and endorsed by the emergency services and leading driving organisations, they will make a significant contribution to improve road safety and help readers become safer and more skilful drivers and riders.”
Both titles have been through an extensive review and rewriting process to ensure the content is comprehensive and up-to-date, incorporating the latest technological and legal changes.
To coincide with the launch of the new editions, the Police Foundation has developed a new website where visitors can find out more about the history of Roadcraft and Motorcycle Roadcraft, get the latest news and sign up for updates.
Both titles will also be available as a PDF and, for the first time, in eBook format for iPad, Kindle Fire and Kobo.
Both titles are priced at £16.99 - click here or call 08702 430 123 to order a copy.
