Safe Drive Stay Alive

Safe Drive Stay Alive seeks to provide an educational experience that teaches young people not only the dangers, but also the consequences, of poor and dangerous driving.

A video reconstruction of a road traffic collision links with on-stage personal testimonies to leave the audience fully aware of both their vulnerability and accountability as new drivers.

Serving members of the police, fire and medical services give real life accounts of local incidents they have witnessed. They are followed by the victims of road traffic collisions – people whose lives have been changed irrevocably.

This is why the show is successful: it is delivered by real people with real stories to tell and, as such, it’s a highly emotional experience.

Our main target audience is Year 11 students, as this group has a high risk of being involved in a road traffic collision. Many will already be travelling as passengers in cars driven by new drivers, or will be learning to drive in the next 12 months.

Why target young drivers?

National statistics show that young drivers are involved in a significantly higher number of accidents than the rest of the population.

However, we have also extended the scheme to include the military, as our area has such a high proportion of military personnel living and working within its boundaries.

In addition, we take the roadshow to business drivers whenever possible.
