This invaluable and hard hitting annual one day event took place at Friesland Sixth Form for our students on July 17th.
The Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, Derbyshire County Council, Derbyshire Police and Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership delivered a range of workshops which focussed upon different aspects of driving and being a passenger.
Students were encouraged to think about the do’s and don’ts surrounding driving, including driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, the dangers of peer pressure and distraction driving which can lead to road traffic collisions.
Much of the focus was about making the right choices and gaining experience as a responsible driver and a supportive passenger. Inevitably some distressing and tragic subject matter was presented and discussed but it was evident that our students’ found the day to be very thought provoking and worthwhile.
Thanks very much to the agencies invoved.
