IAM's Peter Rodger recognised for work
The charity held the ceremony during its Annual General Meeting at The Oxford Hotel in Oxford on 20 January to present a number of awards to individuals who have contributed to road safety. Peter Rodger was recognised as only the 12th individual to become an Honorary Life Member in the last 25 years.
Rodger was rewarded for his long-standing contribution to road safety during his time at the Metropolitan Police and at the IAM. His career in the police force spanned 30 years, where he served as an inspector in traffic patrol and driver and rider training for lorries, buses and motorcycles, as well as in training to fellow police officers involved in collision investigation and traffic laws.
He joined the IAM in 2005 as chief examiner and regularly spoke at conferences and in the media on road safety issues surrounding driving and riding.
Alongside being a member of the IAM, he is also a member of the Motor Schools Association.
Chair of AIRSO, Dr Lucy Rackliff said: “We are proud to honour Peter Rodger with Honorary Life Membership. His contribution to road safety has played a key role in raising the standards of driving and riding for over 30 years. And his continuous efforts to making our roads safer must not go unnoticed.”
