Introduction.
I
A 'Senior' Road Supervisor... could be classified as being somewhere between a Road Supervisor and an unmarked Police car.  They would have more Powers and Responsibilities than an ordinary Road Supervisor, and also much better training... but would not be expected to chase or physically apprehend offenders.  'Senior' Road Supervisors would work closer with local Police making reports and supplying 'Real-Time' Information, via mobile phone about any serious incidents in progress.

Who could become a 'Senior Road Supervisor'.
I
Basically: anyone... could become a 'Senior' Road Supervisor, if they processed the necessary qualities.  As well as having a very good driving record, any applicant would need to have the ability to take charge at the scene of a 'serious' accident.  This would certainly not be within everybody capabilities, in many instances they would probably be members of the Law Enforcement Community: Armed Forces: Emergency Services: or Medical Professions: who would bring some very definite skills or experience to the situation.

Training.
I
Training for Senior Road Supervisors should be quite extensive... although in many cases the applicants may already be more than qualified for the task.  Subjects to be covered might include such things as... first aid: breakdowns: minor accidents: damage assessment: traffic direction: insurance and legal requirements: tow trucks: reporting procedures: 'real time' reporting: major accidents: etc.

Equipment.
The carrying of some equipment would be required... Flashing light or a 'flag': mobile phone: [for all communications equipment... check out The Carphone Warehouse] personal identification: florescent jacket and hat: first aid kit: fire extinguisher: tow rope: camera: torch: reflective triangle: dustpan and broom: [for all car accessories... check out Halfords.] insurance forms: report book: etc.

American Express International Healthcare Plan... for those living... or spending long periods overseas.


I
Powers.
I
A Senior Road Supervisor... should have quite extensive 'powers' to deal with any situation out on the nation's highways.  While not actually expected to physically restrain offenders or give chase to vehicles, they would require a definite 'hands on' approach to other road users and their problems.  They should have the legal authority to instruct other drivers what to do, for instance... to move a vehicle which was causing an obstruction: or after an accident, to wait until the Police arrived.  Failure to obey an instruction given by a Senior Road Supervisor would then be treated as an 'Incident', or if considered a serious matter: [a drunk driver attempting to leave the scene of an accident] the Police could be called on immediately to try and 'Intercept' the vehicle.
I
I
Responsibilities.
I
As with Road Supervisors... the first responsibility would be, as a good example to other road users.  Senior Road Supervisors should have a genuine concern for the welfare of all road users and a commitment to becoming involved in their problems.  While it is quite probable that some Road Supervisors would drive straight past the scene of an accident: [because they're late for work? it's pouring with rain? or it's not a situation they feel they could deal with?] this is not what would be expected from a 'Senior' Road Supervisor: if you were passing the scene, and no one had stopped, then [as a 'Senior'] it would definitely be your responsibility!
