Road safety

Published Friday, 04 October 2013

A thought provoking and powerful play designed to hammer home the dangers of irresponsible driving is being shown at the Millfield Theatre at 7pm on Wednesday 16 October courtesy of Enfield Council.

Safe Drive Stay Alive is a hard hitting road safety presentation aimed at young or new drivers which features real life testimonies of members of the emergency services and other people who have witnessed and been traumatised by road accidents. It complements the £1,000,000 Enfield Council has allocated to its road safety budget this year to reduce the number of accidents on the borough’s roads.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Chris Bond, said: “This completely free production is a must see for any new or young drivers because it graphically highlight the horrific nature of car accidents and the impact they can have on the people affected – both those involved in the accident and those who witness it or have the terrible job of dealing with the aftermath.

“We want to educate our young people about the importance of driving responsibly and this production is a effective way of doing so, we are absolutely committed to cutting the number of accidents in Enfield and encouraging people to drive in a safer fashion, through productions like this is an extremely  effective way of doing precisely that.

”Irresponsible behaviour in vehicles by younger driver is a huge factor when it comes to causing accidents and Safe Drive Stay Alive really emphasizes the danger of distracting drivers or "egging them on"  because peer pressure is a huge factor in influencing the behaviour of this group of drivers.”
