Warrington youngsters urged to think of driving course
4:00pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
CHESHIRE Police’s youth ambassador is encouraging young people getting behind the wheel for the first time to sign up to a course aimed at them.
The Think Drive Survive driving course is aimed at young drivers and has been attended by more than 15,000 young people.
The aim of the course is to change the attitudes and behaviours of young people as drivers, passengers and other road users.
One out of six people killed or seriously injured on Cheshire’s roads are under the age of 21.
And Dominic Rogers, the youth ambassador, hopes to reiterate important safety messages for youngsters driving.
He said: “Sometimes, the basic rules that we’re taught on our driving lessons, such as leaving a two-second gap between us and the vehicle in front are the first to be forgotten. Distractions such as talking with your friends or messing with the radio can lead to lapses in concentration.”
