Schools & Young Drivers
How old are children when they start to drive?It is a known fact that children pick up on behaviour and copy adults; the same thing happens with driving. Children are so vulnerable both on the road and in cars. Road traffic collisions are the biggest killer of young people worldwide; in 2012, 61 children lost their lives on the roads of the UK. Once they get into cars with their friends they have new challenges to overcome. At Insight 2 Drive we offer free, yes free, talks to schools, youth clubs, scouts, cadets in fact any group of young people that have time to listen.
The free presentation helps insure your school has taken every step possible to protect your children.Our initial presentation only takes 45 minutes to present, however, we can make it longer by adding some interactive discussions. We focus on the 8 main challenges young people face as drivers and passengers.
- Showing off.
- Mobile phones.
- Seat belt use.
We have already worked with lots of local schools delivering in car training, focusing on mobile phone use. Unfortunately we have to put a small charge on this to cover our costs.
Some disturbing facts :
- Around 5,000 children die or are seriously injured on Britain’s roads each year.
- As a child gets older the risk of a road accident increases.
- A child from a low income family is 5 times more likely than a high income family to be killed on the road.
- Children from an ethnic minority are involved in up to twice as many accidents.
