Kevin Wilcox, Road Safety Officer from Staffordshire County Council, visited Sixth Formers to deliver a session educating them about the importance of being safe and aware as a driver.

The session included coverage of real life events, whereby drivers who had lacked road awareness had suffered on dangerous consequences. Students were alerted to the responsibility that comes with driving a car.

Sarah Cresswell, Head of Sixth Form, said, “With many of our Y12 students soon turning 17 and learning to drive, they found Kevin’s message poignant and one they definitely won’t forget. Pupils were astonished by some of the statistics that Kevin revealed about the consequences of careless driving and consequently, were prompted to consider ways in which they can ensure they stay safe on the roads. It was a valuable and insightful morning for us all.”
