WORRIED ABOUT YOUR CHILD DRIVING OR BEING DRIVEN BY ANOTHER?
Over the summer, Working2gether will be delivering - Crash Course, a selection of short sessions for young people to encourage greater awareness of the issues they face when driving and encouraging them to become more responsible drivers.
Aimed at those 16 and over, we get to grips with the reasons why young people want to drive and explore potentially dangerous situations they could face, both as a driver and passenger, covering things such as
- What the long term effects of being involved in a road traffic collision could be
- Insurance premiums and how to reduce costs
- How choosing to drive affects career choices
- The Law and anti social behaviour
- Plus many other issues facing young drivers and passengers
Crash Courses will run over the summer at a venue close to you. At the cost of a standard driving lesson this course is not only excellent value, it’s potentially life saving.
Aims of the programme -
- Either 1/2 day or day training sessions aimed at Year 11s, sixth form students and or parents
- There are six, 90 minute "pick & mix" workshops to choose from
- To help young people make informed choices by increasing their knowledge and awareness of road safety issues
looking at why young people want to drive and this decision can affect their future plans and how where they live can affect their transport options, as well as looking into the financial cost of vehicle ownership
Highlighting the links between peer pressure and reckless driving and what the consequences of being a passenger or driver could possibly be
Young people will gain an insight into the law in terms of impaired driving, a definition of impairment and its causes, as well as looking into legal and illegal substances
The Law & Anti-Social Behaviour
This workshop looks at potential overlaps between crime and anti-social behaviour. During this session we also look into vehicle modifications, seatbelts and documents required to drive a car
Victim Empathy & Ripple Effect
A workshop that provides an insight into restorative justice, road traffic collisions from the victims and emergency services perspective, and the long term implications of being involved in a collision
Cheshire Police were the first police authority to introduce FIT (Field Impairment Testing) at the roadside and it is becoming increasingly popular as a way to determine if someone is under the influence of a drug whilst driving. This workshop looks at the concept of FIT testing, what the test involves and police powers. Participants also have the opportunity to take part in a FIT test.
