Bottesford NHW Alert: Join The AA's Streetwatch Survey


Are you concerned about the state of the roads and pavements in your local neighbourhood and how hazardous they can be for pedestrians and cyclists, then  why not take part in this national survey?

Each year AA Streetwatch volunteers help to check out the state of the nation’s neighbourhood roads and pavements. Their 2012 Autumn survey will commence on the 6 October and they are seeking volunteers to help with this  simple survey.

They ask  volunteers to take about thirty minutes to stroll around their local area noting the number of various defects, such as potholes, that they  have listed.  It can be carried out on a day and time to suit you during the two weeks after 6th October.  Surveys like Streetwatch are vital to the AA’s role as the motorists’ champion.

This year,  they are also asking whether any of the defects you see would be hazardous for cyclists. They will provide guidance, a checklist to take with you and tell you how to submit your results in a further e-mail to you once you have registered your interest.

When completed your survey will provide valuable data that can be shared with the highway authorities. Last year the information  provided was published in a report commissioned by the Transport Minister Norman Baker.

They really would value your contribution and of course many of our NHW colleagues  from across the country will be out surveying too.

Do please let them know if you are interested in helping by registering, they will then send you full details just before 6th October.
