Ayr & District Advanced Motorists is a registered charity, operated totally by volunteers. It promotes Advanced / Defensive driving and other road safety measures. It also produces a magazine that aims to be entertaining whilst introducing road safety concepts.
Our aim is to improve road safety concepts with an emphasis on driver improvement training to the local population of South Ayrshire which has a population of just over 100,000 and to involve Ayrshire County as a whole which has a population of about 370,000.
We aim to meet our objectives to the whole of Scotland through our magazine which is entitled ROADSAFETY. This will be done through joint cooperation with the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) who will distribute our magazine to all driving test centres in Scotland of which there are 104 offices. Our articles will appear in affiliated organisations newsletters such as the Kyle and Carrick Council for Voluntary Organisations.
Our aim is to produce an entertaining magazine whilst introducing road safety into the culture of society of Scotland which has a population of just over 5 million people. ROADSAFETY Magazine will focus on driver improvement, road safety articles, information and participation in road safety actions.
We anticipate that the magazine would encourage more active participation in local road safety organisations and the improvement of driving standards, with the aim of lowering of fatalities and major accidents. There would also be a major improvement in aspects of environmental issues such as reduced fuel consumption, fewer tyres and other car parts, more environmental cars operated.
We would like use the magazine to encourage communities to change society culture and thought processes about education and safe driving. Children would grow up in a friendly, safe and cleaner world. Families would not suffer the loss of loved ones or the hurt of visiting hospitals and doctors.
We will target the groups most in danger of causing fatalities and accidents, i.e. the 17-25 year olds and the elderly in extended local area.
