EARLIER this month, A1 Road Skills Ltd were invited by Dr. Noel Kanagaraj Aruldas, the founder of the Indian Road Safety and Welfare Trust based in Chennai in southern India, to become the only UK based safety consultants in the trust. A1 Road Skills thought the invitation a great honour, especially for a small business based in Pembrokeshire, and immediately accepted the proposal. The company is now looking forward to working closely with the trust.
The road safety situation throughout the Indian subcontinent is among the worst in the world, with nearly 250,000 killed in road crashes there last year – 702 a day compared with the UK where almost 5.5 people die in road crashes every day. Mike, a member of A1 Road Skills has previously worked with the Indian government to decrease the risks to motorcyclists within the subcontinent, and he hopes to continue with this work by helping the road safety authorities in India to develop strategies both through education and highway engineering.
