First Road Safety GB online forum deemed a success
The first Road Safety GB online forum took place yesterday afternoon (27 Oct), and with 17 questions covering a wide range of motorcycle-related topics, the session has been declared a success.
The first forum focussed on motorcycling and the safety of motorcyclists, with interested parties invited to submit questions to Road Safety GB’s motorcycling experts, Gareth Tuffery and Mike Wilson, who answered them in real time.
Questions focussed on all areas of motorcycling, from driver training and education to overtaking and protective clothing. All the questions and answers can be found in the forum.
Mike and Gareth’s answers generated more questions, creating an effective dialogue between the experts and those wanting their insight and opinions on the topics.
Nick Rawlings, editor of Road Safety News, said: “We are very pleased with the success of our first forum, and grateful to Mike Wilson and Gareth Tuffery for hosting it.
“Mike and Gareth fielded some thought-provoking questions and have provided expert advice and guidance which will remain available online for others to digest over the coming weeks.
“We hope to host another forum this year, probably in early December, and will announce the date, time and topic in the next week or so.”
Contact Nick Rawlings to suggest a topic for a future forum.
