  4. Article released in Motor Transport Magazine A campaign to highlight the dangers recovery operators face at the roadside is stepping up a gear after receiving “an underwhelming level of response” from MPs. ‘Slow Down Move Over’ (SDMO) was set up four years ago by recovery operator Paul Anstee in an effort to educate the public about what action is required in the event of their vehicle breaking down in order to keep themselves safe. SDMO is also aimed at educating road users to be aware of temporary hazards and to raise awareness of those working at the roadside. Mr Anstee said the government’s insistence on building Smart motorways was increasing the risk to operators working at the roadside. He said: “We have sent letters to relevant MPs suggesting the idea of educating road users through speed awareness courses, the highway code and driving lessons. “However we have unfortunately had an underwhelming level of response to the idea. “Despite this, we have been in contact with Highways England, who are now looking into the ways in which they can support the campaign.” Mr Anstee said he now wanted to raise the issue within the haulage and logistics industry and “encourage relevant training bodies and companies to endorse SDMO in appropriate courses and perhaps to see the inclusion of SDMO on websites and vehicle livery, therefore promoting the campaign further". He added: “It is a sad fact that a significant number of these unfortunate instances until now have involved HGVs and we are therefore seeking support in combatting the problem and reducing accidents and deaths.” Link below to article: https://motortransport.co.uk/blog/2020/06/19/campaigners-highlight-dangers-of-roadside-recovery/?fbclid=IwAR2RyOvgYF0L2V_bpHtILpIxDzf7OF6VscZ8FFyJLSA6rhDnwR0ZqlLKm88

  9. Andy Lambert has now now received the 15 videos shown below which means I need 17 more to make up two screens full. If you are not in the video then you have until Thursday morning at which point he will give up. Please get involved A few of us are putting together a video to promote the INDEPENDENT RECOVERY OPERATORS who as usual are largely invisible to the rest of the world despite being KEY WORKERS themselves! If the finished video is good enough we will use our contacts at the CSRRR (Campaign for Safer Roadside Rescue and Recovery) to try and get it on the box. The plan is to make the video with a series of 16 screens showing 16 VRO’s all saying the same thing.

  11. I have been experimenting with a magnetic fold up arrow system from the USA. With the low numbers of supporting authorities on UK roads need to look at different ideas. I have found that this helps in making people aware and you can put this system on the rear of a vehicle whilst loading. @mushspeed
  12. Well done to Simon and Sarah from Nuvech and there Air Bar. My Rescue Recovery (tow company) has been trailing this product for over a year now! and I have to say it helps to make people to make space when passing. It all so helps when your beacons are covered by the vehicle you are loading! The Airbar helps to alerts drivers that there is a hazard. At no point in using this item has any one actually hit the air bar when it's in use. This month from all their hard work at Nuvech in the UK! American Towman has done a article on this product http://digital.olivesoftware.com/Olive/ODN/AmericanTowman/default.aspx @mushspeed
