Targeting the road safety black spots
The NOCOF members of Scandinavia reported on current challenges they face with regard to congestion and road safety. Texting and driving, speeding and drink driving remain major road safety issues in the region. The Icelandic club FIB outlined their success in encouraging members to send photos of road safety ‘black spots’ directly to the government which has been forced to react as a result.
Despite the difficult economic downturn, membership remains on the up for NOCOF clubs who are aiming to attract further members through the development of new phone applications, the utilisation of GPS systems and a reworking of club magazines to engage more closely with experts from local newspapers.
