Stratton fire station supports road safety campaign

Date: 12th December, 2016

Firefighters at Stratton fire station are again supporting the Christmas drink and drug driving campaign with a dramatic display.

A crashed car (kindly provided by Grist Group) has been placed at the fire station in Highworth Road to look as though it has collided with a tree. An adjacent banner says: “Don’t get smashed – don’t drink and drive”.

Station Manager Lee Brathwaite said: “We want to send a clear message to our community about the disastrous consequences of drinking and driving. Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service has had to deal with far too many horrific road traffic collisions, 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.”

The Service is also working alongside Wiltshire Police and others within the Wiltshire & Swindon Road Safety Partnership to support drink/drug drive roadshows in the run up to Christmas.
