Chris Richards is a Brake Road Safety Ambassador…
Brake, the national road safety charity and Chris Richards ADI is offering FREE volunteer-led educational presentations to groups of young people (age 16-25) on safe driving. These can take place in schools, colleges, youth offender institutions, cadet, army and sports groups etc.
…The educational sessions are provided as part of a community education project funded by Fed Ex, called the Fed Ex & Brake Road Safety Academy.
A volunteer in your area (Me Chris Richards and a few other driving instructors) have been trained by the Academy to deliver the sessions, which last 55-90 minutes, depending on your time constraints, and which can take place at a time and date convenient for you, We recommend that no more than 25 students attend each session.
The workshops can include things like hard-hitting DVD (or video) on the consequences of irresponsible driving, plus a presentations, discussions and interactive workshops on the topics of risk-taking, speeding, drink and drug driving and belting up. It is crucial to raise awareness of these topics among this age group one in ten car drivers are under 25, but one in four drivers killed on the roads are within this age group. If you would like your local Academy volunteer to attend your school, college/institution or club, please email me directly at [email protected] or call me on 07961 828 528 .
