Sixth Formers see hard-hitting driver safety videos
PCSO Alex Franklin delivering the talk.
Wednesday 20th November 2013 by C. Freeman

Students saw a series of hard-hitting road safety films as part of a series of talks about life after school. Many of the lectures were about university applications and career options, but PCSO Alex Franklin also gave a presentation that graphically illustrated the dangers of the 'Fatal Four'.

These key factors include speeding, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving while texting or being distracted and the hazards of not wearing a seatbelt. Two students tried on glasses that simulated the effects of alcohol on vision, demonstrating how difficult it is to judge objects and distances accurately after drinking. The thought-provoking talk also featured real-life case studies of victims who had to live with the devastating consequences of dangerous driving.

PCSO Franklin told the Year 12s: ‘We are giving you an insight into the next part of your lives, you are looking forward to getting your driving licences. We are talking about the fatal four mistakes that can happen on the road and, unfortunately, these are things that we deal with daily.’
