Students receive important road safety messages

8 February 2019 Posted by

Cornwall College students based at the Saltash campus recieved a reactive road safety workshop. Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety Service Prevention and Road Safety team attended the college to deliver messages around the dangers of peer pressure; the difficulties of multi-tasking – distractions in their vehicles such as mobile phones and music streaming; appropriate small changes they could make to their driving to increase their safety and reduce the likelihood of being involved in a collision.

The workshops were requested by a member of staff at the College due to some incidents which had occurred where students were involved in near misses and some collisions in a bid to make students more aware of the appropriate driving behaviours which are required to reduce the risk of them being involved in a collision.
