The Road Safety and School Travel team in Hillingdon invited all Year 12 and 13 students from schools in Hillingdon to attend the Safe Drive Stay Alive presentation on 30th November, held at the Winston Church Hall in Ruislip.
The purpose of the presentation was the importance of young drivers’ safety. Reaching new and pre-drivers in an emotive and hard-hitting way, influencing behaviour and attitude on the roads.
The presentation consisted of numerous partnerships, including London Ambulance Service, MET Police, London Fire Brigade and Transport for London.
The students learnt that young drivers are much more likely to be involved in a crash on roads, often due to inexperience and a lack of knowledge of the risks.
It was a fantastic opportunity for the students from Uxbridge High to be exposed to the information and real life experiences of all the presenters.
