On 5th November, the Road Safety and School Travel team, invited all Year 12 and 13 students in Hillingdon to attend the Safe Drive Stay Alive presentation, being held in at the Winston Church Hall in Ruislip.
The purpose of the presentation was the importance of a young driver’s 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 45 students from Uxbridge High to be exposed to the information and real life experiences of all the presenters.
