Teens the target of road safety message
Teenagers in Bradford are the target of a hard-hitting road safety presentation, which will be delivered to all secondary schools in the district.
In Bradford, on average 41 people aged 16 to 19 are killed or seriously injured each year on the district's roads. The majority of these are car drivers and their passengers, or riders of motorbikes and mopeds.
Bradford Council's road safety team will be delivering the presentations to secondary schools in a bid to reduce this figure and hit home the need to be careful when driving.
The presentation asks the teenagers to think about their attitudes to driving, peer pressure, speed, the effect of alcohol and drugs, the importance of wearing a seatbelt and ensuring their passengers are safe. The presentation is part of on-going work with primary and secondary schools to cut down road accidents. For further information contact Huma Rahman, RSO, on 01274 437817.
