The first session of the 2008 Mega Drive Tour started at Ystrad Mynach College on 9 September.
Mega Drive is a multi-agency project between Capita Symonds Road Safety Team and several other partners. The initiative is designed to educate prospective young drivers about the responsibility of driving a vehicle, and give them a positive attitude before they get behind the wheel.
During September and October, young people from five colleges across Gwent will participate in Mega Drive. Participants will visit interactive workstations covering their fitness to drive a vehicle, their ability to foresee potential hazards, in-car safety, what can cause a crash, and how to deal with one if they are first on the scene - as well as the effects and of drugs and alcohol on driving behaviour. The session includes a 15-minute drive under the guidance of an approved driving instructor.
