Blues and twos

The Guild of Experienced Motorists (GEM) has just launched a ‘Blue Light Aware’ video which offers advice to members of the public on how to help an emergency service driver on a ‘blue light run’.

The advice is based on that offered in the Highway Code and addresses specific situations identified as causing confusion for motorists.

The video production follows a three-month consultation period in which emergency service representatives and road safety professionals were invited to provide their expert comment on how each situation should be illustrated and explained.

It has the support of the Association of Chief Police Officers, the Chief Fire Officers Association, the Driving Standards Agency, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, RoadSafe, the Motor Schools Association and the Institute of Advanced Motorists.

Full details of the project can be viewed at http://www.bluelightaware.org.uk/
