Alive to Drive: award winning road safety event returns!
The multi-agency road safety day “Alive to Drive” promises to be the biggest event yet.
Hosted at Leyland Tesco Extra store by Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service and Chorley Advanced Motorists the showcase is now in its 15th year.
Organisers will be joined over two full days by emergency services, National Highways, blood bikes, Lancashire Road Safety Partnership, ProTyre, as well as others with the aim of educating Lancashire residents in all areas of road safety.
Julie Whitworth, from Chorley Advanced Motorists said “The aim of the Alive to Drive event is to raise the profile of road safety and driver skills by encouraging drivers of all ages to improve their awareness, skills and attitudes to driving by undertaking the advanced driving course with Chorley Advanced Motorists.
“Around 275 local people have completed the advanced driving course as a direct result of the Alive to Drive campaign. Since the inception of Alive to Drive 15 years ago the campaign has grown enormously and is now, I believe, the largest road safety event in Lancashire”.
Clare Burscough, road safety coordinator for Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service added “The Alive to Drive event is a great opportunity for the public to meet their local emergency services and learn about all aspects of road safety. We are delighted to have the support from so many partners for the two days”.
*The free event takes place 9am – 5pm on Saturday 13th May and 10am – 5pm on Sunday 14th May.
Road Traffic Collision Demonstrations will take place at 11am and 2pm on each day*
