The Weekly Roundup

IMI fears that with 60% of women not signed up to a recovery service, the freezing temperatures and ice and snow set to hit the UK will leave many women stranded in broken down cars.  IMI has produced a series of films to give women the some of the tools they need to avoid this disaster.

In other news, The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) is calling for traffic education to be made a compulsory part of the national curriculum. It wants the UK to follow the lead of Italy, Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic and Latvia, where it is mandatory to learn about traffic and road safety. Instead, schools in Britain only teach road safety skills on a voluntary basis.
