A new national website to help you to recognise whether and how your driving is changing, what you can do to cope with these changes, find a local driving assessment or refresher training, understand the law about health conditions and driving and renewing your driving licence and plan for the need to change when and where you drive, and if it becomes necessary, to retire from driving.

Road safety in action – time for change

stop road deathsRoADAR Cyprus is a non-profit organisation whose professional expertise is unrivalled in the field of road safety.

Bad driving behavior and the carnage it causes on our roads is totally unacceptable in an environment where safety is paramount to every journey. It will be many years, in fact it may never be achieved not just here in Cyprus but around the world before road crashes are seriously diminished in numbers.

Deaths on our roads regularly feature in the press and are reported on by the media. Why is it that the loss of a mother, father, daughter or son in such a tragic event fails to move those of us who are unrelated to the victims? Where is the public outcry for the loss of a life which could have been avoided because unless we speak up or do something about making our roads safer your family may be the next one to experience the loss of a loved one?

Road safety impacts on all of us and to improve standards we must not depend on the Police and authorities to inform, educate and punish us when appropriate. There is only so much that can be done and when all avenues have been exhausted by them and crashes still happen what do we do then?

To bring about change to driver attitude and behavior requires greater responsibility from all of us and more accountability for those who choose not to change their ways and therefore pose a greater risk to society and our safety. Continue reading Road safety in action – time for change

Sovereign Base Area Police commit to enhanced road safety

SBA-Course-2014

RoADAR Cyprus, the road safety charity has been actively involved in training two SBA police officers who have succeeded in becoming Police Advanced Riding Instructors.

Police Constables Marcos Michaelides and Enis Suleyman who are both RoSPA Gold Award advanced motorcyclists have now taken their skills to a much higher level and are proud to have become professional Instructors.

SBA Police recognize that better trained riders are safer riders. They respect their bikes and the roads, riding in a safe, smooth and controlled manner.

All officers who are expected to patrol on motor bikes can now look forward to being trained in advanced riding skills by Marcos and Enis.

Their Trainers, Steve Tucker and Mike Moorby, who are Advanced Riding Instructors and Examiners for RoADAR Cyprus are very pleased with the commitment shown by the SBA Police to improve road safety for their officers.

Steve Tucker says, “The quality of training we provided demanded full commitment to achieve their qualification. Marcos and Enis’s theoretical knowledge, riding skills and instructional techniques have been raised to a level which are world class. It is rewarding to know that these new skills will benefit the public as well, when professional advice and guidance will be on offer at events and wherever their duties interact with the public.”

If you have a wish to become an advanced driver or rider or just want to be involved with a forward thinking and highly motivated group of people committed to making the roads of Cyprus safer for everyone, we look forward to hearing from you.
