Motor insurance: Roadshow 'looks at dangerous driving'

Tuesday, 02 October 2007

Teenagers in Swindon have been given a unique insight into the problems caused by dangerous driving as part of the Safe Drive Stay Alive Roadshow.

Real-life incidents were used to promote safer driving measures at the event which was attended by 200 pupils at Bradon Forest School, reports the Swindon Advertiser.

A number of survivors of car accidents spoke at the event, such as Simon Johnston, who was left with brain injuries after an accident.

Emily Mendham, 15, said that the footage really drilled the message home that car accidents are a risk when in vehicles.

"It really brought it home to me hearing the genuine emotion in the speakers' voices when they told their stories. You know they aren't just fiction as well and that's what really struck a chord," she told the paper.

Recently, police in London carried out a number of checks on cars and found that many of them did not have valid car insurance, which could pay for damages in the event of an accident.
