RoSPA appoints new road safety manager for Scotland

12.00 | 2 May 2014 |

Sandy Allan, a retired senior police officer, is RoSPA’s new road safety manager in Scotland.

Sandy Allan was a police officer for almost 32 years. He has extensive road safety experience and spent five years as a road safety co-ordinator for Police Scotland, where he was responsible for road safety policy in the south east of Scotland.

During his time with Police Scotland, he developed a young driver intervention and the Around the Corner motorcycle campaign which received a Prince Michael Road Safety Award in 2011. He has also taken advanced car and motorcycle courses.

Sandy Allan said: “I’m keen to get stuck in and develop RoSPA’s work, particularly around occupational road risk. It is estimated that up to a third of road accidents are caused by someone using the road for work purposes, so I will be using my experience to promote campaigns aimed at reducing casualties.

“I am really looking forward to my new role and excited about the challenges which lie ahead.”
