GEM says ‘thank you’ to emergency services and delivery drivers

Road safety and breakdown organisation GEM Motoring Assist is extending a massive ‘thank you’ to the emergency services, truckers, hauliers and delivery drivers who have continued to provide a fantastic service throughout the duration of the coronavirus crisis.

GEM says it acknowledges the tireless work done by drivers in the frontline of responding to emergencies, maintaining food and other supplies during a period of unprecedented confusion and disruption.

GEM road safety officer Neil Worth said: “We encourage anyone who may be using the roads in the coming days and weeks to be as courteous and considerate as possible to these drivers, and also to make safety a number one priority.

“Most if not all will face considerable demands during their working time. We can help with small acts of courtesy such as giving way, creating extra space, holding back and saying ‘thank you’ – all of which can reduce stress on journeys and contribute to a safer road environment.

“It’s vital that we all show tolerance and patience – particularly for those we currently rely on more than ever.”
