His good work means we are well placed to manage our way through the various challenges that the current coronavirus lockdown presents. I look forward to building on his excellent leadership and inspiring everyone who contributes towards the charitable mission of IAM RoadSmart to continue the great work we do to improve driver and rider behaviour.”
