Crashed car displays at Bournemouth fire stations


Date: 4th December, 2017

Two Bournemouth fire stations are supporting the Christmas anti-drink/drug driving campaign with a dramatic display.

Crashed cars have been placed at the fire stations in Redhill and Springbourne to look as though they have collided with the boundary walls. Adjacent banners say: “Drink, drugs, drive – don’t do it!”

The displays will stay in place until the New Year, and have been marked as ‘police aware’ in case anyone sees them and believes them to be a real accident.

Station Manager Julian Lockwood said: “We want to send a clear message to our communities about the disastrous consequences of drinking/drug taking and driving. Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service has had to deal with far too many horrific road traffic collisions in 2017, and we are urging people to really think about their actions over the Christmas period.”

He added: “The impact of a collision not only affects those driving, but can have a lasting effect on families, whether by a death or injury to a loved one or a prison sentence for anyone who has behaved irresponsibly and broken the law. All we ask is that you have a safe festive period, by taking responsible steps to ensure that you get home safe and sound following your celebrations.”
