Young drivers to be taught about responsibilityThursday, April 29, 2010 17:05
A new scheme has been set up by road charity Brake in a bid to get the country’s young drivers to be safer on the roads.
Driving instructors are being asked to join a Buddy Driving Instructor Scheme, which equips them with a range of resources to highlight the dangers of irresponsible motoring.
A £25 donation is requested in order for them to join the scheme, in return for which they will be presented with materials to distribute to clients and free membership to Brake’s Road Safety Forum.
They will also be given the regular e-bulletin International Road Safety News, plus a number of discounts at Brake events.
Caroline Perry, marketing manager at Brake, said: "Driving instructors have a vital role to play by educating young people about driving responsibly, helping to change young people’s attitudes and saving lives in the process."
The charity recently called for a truck visibility code to be introduced on Britain’s roads.
