Here, we are pleased to present our latest newsletters which tell you about things we've been doing. We also publish special bulletins concerning road closures which could effect our local car and motorcycle members.
Note that we only keep newsletters covering the last 9 months on this webpage.
(Last updated October 2019)
In this feature, we post articles essentially focussing on driving safety matters, which are appropriate to our region.
In the top document in the list, we have republished the article on winter tyres, which we introduced last November, now that the cold weather has re-appeared.
In the second document, we provide a brief summary of what the Department for Transport is planning for our future in their Road Safety Statement published in July. The next document also focusses on road safety and how Average Speed Cameras have improved driver behaviour in our Region.
The next 2 documents provide Motorbike riders with a pictorial reminder of POWDERY checks and to complement that, we have also given car drivers a pictorial guide to cockpit checks before getting ready to move off in a diesel or petrol fuel car. (We will sort one for hybrids or electric vehicles in the near future.)
The IAM RoadSmart winter 2019 magazine featured an article on potholes, so in the 6th bulletin, we tell you how to report them to Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire councils so that they can repair these faults and make our roads safer for everyone.
In the last of the listed bulletins, we learn about hazards that a truck driver has to contend with at roundabouts or junctions and what we can do to help the driver of a 40te plus truck. Many of you will be familiar with such problems on Anderson drive.
