For the 8th consecutive year the Safe Drive Stay Alive Roadshow visited us at Devizes School to speak with Year 11 students about being aware of the dangers on the road when driving.
Safe Drive Stay Alive is a Wiltshire and Swindon Road Safety initiative coordinated by Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service on behalf of a partnership which includes Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire Council and Swift Medics. It is designed to raise awareness of the dangers of driving for young people because statistically there is a significant increase in road traffic related fatalities for 15 - 24 year olds.
As well as real-life stories and essential advice from the professionals, the roadshow also featured a car which had been involved in a fatal accident as a way of bringing home the real consequences of dangerous driving to the students. The students found it a sobering experience which allowed them to consider their vulnerabilities and accountability as they embark on learning to drive.
