The Roadcraft system of car control

With the growth of the police fleet, Hendon Driving School was established in 1934 to improve police driving and reduce the number of accidents. In 1937 the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police appointed Lord Cottenham, (a well-known racing driver) to train driving instructors in advanced driving. Lord Cottenham's instructions allowed drivers to be in control of any situation they faced; through using an ordered system of car control they could ensure their vehicle was in the right place at the right time, travelling at the right speed and in the correct gear to clear a hazard safely. subsequently reduced the Metropolitan Police's accident rate by over two thirds.

Roadcraft is written for police drivers and riders and covers safe effective driving techniques; however the majority of the material in the books is relevant to non-emergency service drivers and riders too.

Roadcraft is available in the following formats:

Print: from the TSO Shop, the Safe Driving for Life website, Amazon, and all good booksellers. Note, if you are buying Roadcraft from an online store (other than from TSO or Safe Driving for Life) you may not be able to purchase the latest impression of the book. To ensure you have the latest impression, you can buy the book in person at a bookstore and check the impression number inside the book, or purchase online from TSO or Safe Driving for Life, both of which sell the most recent impressions.

eBook: available from your device’s eBook Store e.g. Kindle, iBooks and Kobo.

Road conditions are changing all the time. Buy the latest impression, read it three times, then keep it in the glove compartment for those times you're sitting in the car waiting for someone. Keep refreshed. It will become second nature and you'll reduce the risk of accident by being in the right place at the right time, travelling at the right speed and in the correct gear to clear a hazard safely.

So why am I writing about this on ATS?

The topic of the thread is Nuclear Remediation. I created the thread to gather information on that topic. Having encountered this story in my research, though, I thought it was important to note that Dr. Brown definitely claimed supression of his work before his untimely passing at the age of 43 in an auto accident.

Again and again we hear about the untimely road death of an enemy of big business. If Dr. Brown was a serious threat to the nuclear decommissioning and containment scam, it would have only cost the tiniest fraction of the budget to have him whacked. Then the money keeps rolling in.

Read it.
Read it again.
And read it again.

Hazards on the road come in all shapes and sizes, from potholes to assassins.

Stay safe.

So true! Knowing when to accelerate, when to brake, when to do a controlled brake, etc. . . can save lives. Monkeys can just press the accelerator, it's knowing when to brake and control it that saves lives.
