STUDENTS from across the county will experience a hard-hitting road safety presentation between now and Christmas.

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service's Safe Drive Stay Alive uses powerful personal testimony and dramatic video footage to make the audience aware of the tragedy and suffering caused by road traffic collisions.

Firefighters, medics, police officers, bereaved parents and people who have been directly involved in road traffic collisions recount their stories, often in heart-breaking detail.

The aim is for every year 11 student to see the presentation, and for schools not to be financially affected by supporting this.

Christine Sharma, road safety manager said: “The presentation is hard hitting and upsetting, but we make no apology for that. The speakers are real people who have experienced the horror of road traffic collisions."
