Course drives road safety message home

Campaigners have launched a drive to help people in Yorkshire spread the road safety message to youngsters.

Brake's 2young2die initiative is running a course in Leeds aimed at young people as well as teachers, emergency services staff, driving instructors and community campaigners.

Run at Wellington Place, the course is aimed at helping people deliver engaging road safety education and training to those aged between 11 and 25.

Those attending will be given a certificate enabling them to deliver 2young2die workshops, as well as a detailed road safety training guide.

Resource packs are also available to those going on to run workshops, together with access to the road safety charity's online interactive learning facilities.

Brake says the course will help those attending engage with young people to get their road safety message across effectively.

The charity stresses that road safety is something that affects everyone, but traffic accidents are a big killer of the UK's 15 to 25 year-olds.
