Youngsters learned about the dangers on the roads thanks to a dramatic crash reconstruction.

They watched a dramatic crash demonstration in which a team of fire fighters and paramedics attempted to free a girl from a crashed car. The girl and her boyfriend were actually Peterborough Regional College Students. In the fictional scenario, the girl died and the boyfriend was arrested. The reconstruction was part of the ‘For My Girlfriend’ campaign. Clair George road safety officer for the Safer Peterborough Partnership, said: “Research shows that young drivers, in particular young male drivers, are at a much higher risk of crashing than older counterparts. They are more at risk of losing their lives or being seriously injured on the road, killing or injuring their young passengers or other road users.”
