We have been conducting some PCAs across the country over the last year and have come across some practice which we have challenged to promote good practice throughout the industry. These include:
The feedback we have been receiving from the scheme managers is that they are unaware of any guidance which highlights bad practice with suggested good practice which can be used as an alternative. Is anyone away of any specific guidance like this and if not could we used this conversation as an opportunity to shape this to support scheme managers with developing their schemes?
Stop 'U' turns
Stopping all the time a Give Way lines
Putting out warning cycle training signs
Promoting signalling every time regardless of whether there is anyone else around
The updated National Standard is much better at informing manages exactly what is NS practice. These examples (which all ITOs will have seen when observing on PCAs) are vestiges from cycling proficiency .
Also the cover note to the NS guidance covers the spirit of NS training and clearly suggest that signs do not make for realistic a training environment
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
