Introduction.
I
From Inception to Implementation... it is virtually impossible to detail a comprehensive Strategy for the Project... there are far to many unknown factors and variables.  Neither is it possible to predict the final outcome of this Project and say whether it will be a Success... or a complete Failure... the only thing that is certain... is that it won't be easy.  This is a massive undertaking and our intention is just to act as the 'Hub' of a Network and to give everyone who wants to participate in this endeavour the opportunity to do so... in whatever way they see fit.
I
The basic Idea and Philosophy behind 'The Project' is the same as for 'The Concept'.  That is... "the most valuable asset that we have are people".  They have an infinite amount of... Talent: Experience: Energy: and Ideas... which could be tapped into.  The Internet now gives us the opportunity to harness those Talents, wherever they may be... exchange Ideas... and Communicate with large numbers of people very quickly.  What exactly can be achieved in this way has yet to be determined.  The "Information Age" awaits!
I
The following is just a simple Outline Plan... we know where we are... where we want to get to... and the basic directions for getting there... but much of it will involve monitoring the situation and setting the strategy as we go: [for more Information... see Details.]
I

Why support such a System?
I
There are some very basic question that need answering, like... who should support such a road safety scheme?... why would they support such a scheme?... what will the future be like if we stay on our present course?  The next few years will bring a whole raft of changes which will makes some very fundamental changes to your life... so we will try to give some possible answers.
I
Where we are now... there have been no significant reductions in the rate of road accidents for quite some time... despite a huge increase in the the number of Fines, Points and Driving Bans.  Apart from a much greater chance of losing your licence... if you are a part of the law-abiding majority you will also be paying an Insurance surcharge to cover uninsured drivers... while the Fine for those having no Insurance... is actually being reduced.  There are now about 2 million illegal drivers in Britain... with no MOT, Tax, Insurance, not Registered... who drive how they like... park where they like... and what are the Authorities doing to combat this problem?  Not very much!
I
Where we're heading... this problem will only get worse.  The Government pass more and more Laws... and they will, increasingly, use various new technologies, like... ISA, GPS, black-boxes, cameras, etc... in order to... monitor, control and punish you.  A real Big-Brother scenario!  Car ownership will become increasingly expensive... with pay-as-you-drive Insurance, road-pricing and congestion charging... and there will be little you can do about it unless you choose to join the growing ranks of illegal drivers.  Of all the problems you encounter on a daily basis as a driver... these technologies won't alleviate any of them.
I
Alternative.  We believe their approach is completely warped... that, if anything, technology should be used to empower the law-abiding majority... encouraging people to become Active Citizens... working with the Authorities... and targeting those who wilfully break the law.  A system that can significantly reduce the level of fatalities... can deal with any problem on the roads... while still applying some basic commonsense... and without costing a fortune.  This kind of system is not pro-car... or anti-car... it is quite possible to go out and enjoy the driving experience without sacrificing road safety.
I
Whether you are a petrol-head... or a car-hating tree-hugger... there are good reasons why you might want to support such a scheme.  See Article... 'Who should support this type of System?'

Developing the Project.
I
All these sections are intertwined to a certain extent.  Part of The Project would be to develop a new, highly inter-active Website... and to develop and refine the Concept.  So, this section is really concentrating on ways to publicise and promote the existence of the Website... and spreading the word about the Concept.
I
This section is more about ways to support The Project.  These could be...   Helping to spread the Word... Giving us some Feedback... Letting us know your Ideas... Your Opinions... Supplying Content... Writing... Re-writing... Becoming Politically Active... Making a Donation... Forming a Group... etc. etc.
I
Building support.  It is our intention to build from the ground up.  That means we start with the general Public... get their Ideas and Opinions first.  Once we have a 'reasonable level' of public support we can move on to... the Media: Police: Motoring Organisations: Road Safety Organisations: and the like... who we can expect to look into the Concept in much more detail... and be much more critical.  Finally... we can start to tackle Governments at State or National level: [not to say that we will be able to control things in exactly this way.]
I
The whole idea of Road Supervisors relies on a large number of people being prepared to get involved in their own communities... or at least in the things that directly affect them.  If you cannot even generate enough interest for people to say that they support what you are trying to achieve... then it would be virtually impossible to get them to actively participate in a system.  It's also unlikely that those at the centre of Government will take you very seriously... unless there is obviously quite substantial support for the objectives.
I
If you've read 'The Concept' and agree with the basic objectives... then please let us know via one of our Feedback Forms and... if you feel so inclined... have a look through our 'Help Us' section... to see what else you might like to do.
I

Raising funds... it is entirely possibly that the Financial viability of the Network will need to rely on voluntary Donations from those who support our basic objectives.  Running a Network such as this without an income is absolutely impossible.  Costs are incurred on an ongoing basis.  When the Website has been suitably developed it is possible we may be able to generate some income from Advertisers or Sponsors.  However... latest figures about generating advertising revenues on the Internet are far from encouraging... unless the website is highly focused on a profitable niche market... or, it is getting, literally, millions of hits a day.  If you would like to assist this Project by making a Donation: just click Here.

Developing the Concept.

I
Our main objective is simply to give people an opportunity to express their opinions about new technology being introduced as road safety measures... and any related issues.  The general trend seems to for the State to use this new technology to monitor, control and punish ordinary people... as opposed to criminals.  While all these technologies may have some part to play... we believe every effort should be made to use technology as a way of empowering people... to make them feel like they are a part of their community... working with the Authorities.  We have outlined this Concept as one example... just to show how this could be achieved.  Perhaps there are better alternatives?
I
Refining the Concept... an ongoing process.  Although it is not our intention to try and develop a plan with the sort of detail that any Government would require before implementation... it is our intention to alter and develop the Concept... taking on good ideas wherever they originate from.  We would value Feedback from anyone... not only about Road Safety... but about developing the website... and promoting the ideas.  While we would certainly welcome support... we also need to address all the possible objections.  Those who think this Concept is a 'bad' Idea... or that it simply would not work... whether your objections are Practical: Legal: or Philosophical... we would like to hear from you too. 
I
People can become involved in a variety of ways... 'Support' comes in many different forms, for instance... helping to spread the Word: giving us Feedback: submitting Ideas: Writing... in many different forms... supplying Content: becoming Politically Active: or making a Donation.  [For more Information click 'Details' at the bottom of the page: or, click the 'Help Us' section over on the left.]

Developing the Website.

I
One of the main unknown factors is the Internet itself... it changes year by year... and the prospect of new innovative solutions opens up.  We envisage the vast majority of what we hope to achieve: [in spreading the Word: gaining Support: raising Funds: co-ordinating Efforts: facilitating Ideas: monitoring Progress: publicising News: etc. etc,] being done via the Internet.  
I
It is not our intention to launch our Website with a great deal of fanfare and publicity... this all takes Time... and costs Money.  We look at the launch as more like pushing a snowball down a hill... small and slow to start with... but steadily building up... gaining momentum... until it becomes a force in its own right.  [Initially... it may be that we are not geared up to deal with a large number of visitors and so could easily be overwhelmed and lose potential supporters.  By building up slowly we will have more time to iron out any problems.]  In time we hope that the Website will be... Professional, Functional, Interactive and Reliable enough to cope with any demand.
The Internet means... we do not need to have the same structure as Organisations from the past... whereby supporters take their lead from some centralized committee.  Supporters can act in a completely autonomous way... making contact with like minded people, whether this is down to... locality, age, interests, common problems, experience, etc... and contributing whatever they feel they can... or just let us know how they are progressing if they are embarking on their own local campaign.

Implementation.
I
How a Government went about implementing a Concept like this would be different in every country... but it is not something that we believe is technically difficult.  The stages they would probably need to go through would be something like...
I
* Their own Study and Consultation Process.
* The drafting of a Legal Document. 
* Writing a Road Supervisor's 'Handbook'.
* Recruiting sufficient numbers of 'Road Supervisors'.
* Recruiting and Training 'Senior Road Supervisors'.
* Recruiting and Training volunteers for 'Review Panels'.
* Developing a range of courses for 'problem' drivers.
* Build an Internet Website.
* Issue a booklet for all drivers... about the 'New System'.
* Instigate a 3-6 month trial period... to iron out problems.
* Set up a Monitoring Committee... to study progress.
* Implementation... Bring it Online!!
I
If a Government were to introduce this scheme and it did show a significant improvement in the accident rate... then this would give us even more impetus to have it introduced in other places.

How to... Help Us.
I
Perhaps we should call this section... 'How to Help us.. Help you'.  It is an absolute impossibility for 'Us' to bring about the successful implementation of a major Project such as this.  We have defined a small but very important role that we can play in this process... but to bring about its success will require a lot of Work... from a lot of People... and after Implementation... a lot of effort on an ongoing basis.  It means ordinary citizens becoming much more pro-active in upholding the law and not just being passive observers.  Make no mistake... this is not going to be easy... we are talking about making some pretty fundamental changes to the way in which your Society is 'Policed'... and however good the intentions may be... you should still expect plenty of opposition.
I
We're not talking about trying to undermine or tear down something we don't like... we're talking about having to build something from scratch which could benefit the whole of Society... and that is going to be a lot more difficult.  To find out what you can do... just click: 'Help Us - details'.
