What is Dying 2 Drive?
Dying 2 Drive is a free multi-agency road safety scheme aimed at reducing death and serious injury amongst young road users in Herefordshire.
Our events involve a realistic road traffic collision (RTC) reconstruction followed by powerful interactive workshops.
The scheme is aimed at Year 11 students who will currently be car passengers and soon become young drivers.
What does the event involve?
Sessions begin with the reconstruction of a fatal road traffic collision involving all of the blue light services, their response and the ripple effect of such a collision.
After the reconstruction, key safety messages will be reinforced through group activities. The workshops will focus on the causes of RTCs such as not wearing seatbelts, driving whilst impaired and driving with distractions.
There will also be various skills discussed that may help them to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
