Wiltshire students can learn from a hard-hitting road safety presentation between now and Christmas.
Safe Drive Stay Alive uses powerful personal testimony and dramatic video footage to make the audience aware of the tragedy and suffering caused by road traffic collisions.
Firefighters, medics, police officers, bereaved parents and people who have been directly involved in road traffic collisions recount their stories, often in heart-breaking detail.
Safe Drive Stay Alive is a road safety initiative co-ordinated by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service in a partnership with Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire Council, Swindon Borough Council, Arval Ltd and Severn Major Trauma Network.
The aim is for every Year 11 student to see the presentation, and for schools not to be financially affected by supporting the scheme. All transport to and from the venues is therefore provided by the Safe Drive team, and paid for from external funding and sponsorship.
Safe Drive Stay Alive roadshows have been held in Swindon and at Dauntsey School in West Lavington. More are planned for schools, including Salisbury on October 9 and 10; and Tidworth, November 22.
Shows for military personnel in are planned for November, as well as a parallel programme of shows for schools in Dorset.
