Schools across South Holland can ensure young people are safer on the roads by hosting the award-winning 2fast2soon driver education programme.

Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership spokesman John Siddle said the orginal programme, which won the Prince Michael of Kent Internataional Award in 2010, has been revised so it can be delivered at schools, colleges and businesses.

At its heart is a drama spelling out the consequences of being involved in a serious injury accident.

Mr Siddle said: “The drama has been developed specifically to help reduce the large number of young drivers and their passengers who are killed or seriously injured on Lincolnshire’s roads, but will also influence changes in the behaviour of other road user groups.”

It launches at Lincolnshire Showground’s Epic Centre at 7pm on September 25.
