Safe Drive Stay Alive is an educational experience designed to engage the audience with the effects of their decisions as drivers and passengers on the road.
The presentation is based around powerful personal testimonies, which come from serving members of all three emergency services, parents of young people who have lost their lives in a road traffic collision, those left with life changing injuries following a collision and even those who have caused death or injury as a driver. It has been designed to make the audience aware of the nature and extent of personal tragedy and suffering caused by a road traffic collision.
It leaves those attending aware of their personal vulnerability and accountability as new drivers and is designed to impact in a positive way upon their attitude towards the concept of driving.
Schools can opt for a live show delivered in their theatre or auditorium, or opt to watch the digital version of the show, streamed through Vimeo. Both versions of the show cover the same themes and include a lesson plan and further resources. Written in alignment with British Values and a number of PSHE objectives in Health & Wellbeing and Relationships, the lesson plan and resources are designed to leave young people with a positive view of driving itself, as well as a realistic understanding of the potential dangers.
Each year we deliver this powerful presentation to over 15,000 students. The roadshow is available FREE to every school and college for Years 11, 12 or 13 students.
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.
- One in five drivers involved in a serious road traffic collision are under the age of 25.
- Around half of all accidental deaths of children are due to road traffic collisions.
- An alarming one in five of drivers crash in their first year of driving.
- Young drivers are five times more likely to crash with young passengers in their car than when driving alone or with a parent or carer.
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. See Survive the Drive for more.
