Road Safety Event - Friday 30th November 2018

Blaby District Council and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service are holding a road safety event at Enderby Leisure Centre on Friday November 30th for young people over the age of 12.

A high proportion of road traffic collisions involving young drivers happens due to one or more of the Fatal Four. Speeding, using a mobile device, drink or drugs and not wearing a seatbelt.

LFRS are bringing their "crash car", a Ford Focus ST that has been modified and simulates what it feels like to be in a road traffic collision.

They also have virtual reality headsets which show a 360 degree film educating potential drivers by creating an awareness of the dangers before they even get behind the wheel, which will hopefully lead to more, safer drivers on the road in the future.

The event will be supervised by LFRS and Blaby District Council Youth Workers.
