A special road safety film written by fire cadets is to be screened at Reel cinema in Widnes in order to raise awareness of the effects of dangerous driving. The film was written after a tragic incident where a fellow cadet died in a fatal road collision in September 2010. The film, written and filmed by Halton fire cadets, will be shown at different times on various screens at the cinema and there will also be talks by firefighters on road safety.
In addition, talks will be held explaining why the film is being shown and a driving simulator will be present as well as fire engines to target all age groups with the importance of road safety. There will also be a vehicle on display in which a 22-year old driver lost his life to demonstrate the devastating effects of drink driving. The vehicle was donated by the driver’s family to encourage drivers to think before stepping into a vehicle after drinking alcohol. The driver tragically lost his life after losing control on a country road despite only travelling at 43mph in a 60mph road. The driver hit a tree which resulted in fatality. Firefighter Phil Bishop has expressed gratitude to the cinemas for helping get the message across by showing the cadets’ film.
Importance of spreading road safety message
A hard-hitting road safety film can help to raise awareness of the consequences of driving recklessly and can show how unsafe driving can affect other people’s lives. Spreading road safety awareness by use of advice along with police enforcement can help to reduce the risk of an accident on the roads, particularly if more people exercise vigilance and can also help to reduce needless fatalities caused by collisions and crashes. There are many drivers who practise road safety at all times but some become lax in this area, particularly when in a rush or when under pressure. Should you have been involved in an accident that is the fault of another driver, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.
