The Volunteer Driver's Handbook

Check out this email I received from
RoSPA has launched a new handbook to help volunteer drivers avoid accidents and injuries to themselves, their passengers and other road users....The new handbook has sections on key driving issues including journey planning, fitness to drive (including the effects of drink, medicines and fatigue), safe speed, seatbelts, distraction (including from mobile phones), vehicle safety and emergency procedures.

Produced with the support of the Department for Transport, the Volunteer Driver's Handbook is also available as a free download at Paper copies can be ordered free by emailing and the deadline for orders is 27 April 2007.

The new handbook complements a manager's guide on occupational road risk in voluntary organisations that was produced by RoSPA in 2003 and can be downloaded from

Maybe we could add this to add this to our respective youth work manuals....
