Secondary school road safety

Cut it out - road safety initiative

Scottish Fire and Rescue is running a special education programme for all S5 and S6 students across South Lanarkshire.

Firefighters and other emergency service personnel take a crashed car on a trailer to secondary schools to highlight what can happen in a bad collision.

Pupils discuss with the emergency services the consequences of speeding, drink driving and the importance of wearing seat belts.

As part of the presentation, students are shown various video clips including an interview with a teenage girl who suffered serious burns in a road traffic accident.

For more information please phone Scottish Fire and Rescue on 01555 667000.
