Peterborough pupils were given a jolt as they got the chance to see what it is like to be in a car crash using a sophisticated simulator as part of Road Safety Week.

The youngsters at The Voyager Academy took part in the activities.

Speaking of her experience in the simulator, Harriet-Rose Woodhams, Year 12 student said: “It really was an awakening experience, to get an idea of what a crash is like first-hand is a rare opportunity. I know that coming out of it me and my friends understood the need to be more aware and cautious than ever when on the road.”

The academy’s post-16 students were visited by Walking Forward Theatre company, arranged by the Road Safety Team, which performed a short play called ‘Wasted’ which looked at driving safely and the consequences of not doing so.
