Greater Manchester is the scene of a new safety campaign called Safe Drive Stay Alive. It is aimed at students and young people between the ages of 17 and 25. The aim is to highlight the very real dangers of speeding and how it can ruin lives.
The event is being presented at the Middleton Arena in Greater Manchester and begins with a lively party atmosphere. However this does not last long as the presentation takes a turn for the worse by presenting the dangers of speeding to the young audience. They will see the many consequences that stem from a fatal road accident.
The closing section of each event features the loved ones of someone who really was killed in a road accident due to speeding. These are not actors – they are real people talking to the audience about someone who was killed as a result of driving too fast, or being involved in an accident where someone else was speeding.
It is hoped this will shock the youngsters at each event into realising the consequences of poor driving abilities. Other real people including police officers and emergency personnel are also taking part in the initiative.
Is speeding really that dangerous?
To put it simply and bluntly, speeding can and does kill. As we have seen in the campaign above, the consequences can be potentially fatal to those who speed as well as those they involve in accidents they cause.
It is hoped that this campaign will make many young people realise just how dangerous this is, and how much heartache can be caused when a young person loses their life as a result of such a crash. Speeding means you have far less time in which to take actions or avoid them.
