Students had a potentially life-saving experience when RED Driving School called in with its driving simulator as part of its journey to spread the safe driving message throughout the UK.

RED tours schools and colleges to educate young people about road safety in an effort to reduce the number of young people killed or injured on the UK's roads each year, as this group is statistically the most likely to be involved in road traffic crashes.

The visit was led by RED's Road Safety Officer, Andy Milne.

Andy said: "RED Driving School is committed to road safety education; this is a topic we take very seriously. I feel privileged to be in a position where I can influence hundreds of young people to prevent them from becoming part of the horrendous statistics associated with road traffic crashes.

"This initiative, entirely funded by forward-thinking driving school, RED, saves lives each day. The blessing is we'll never know whose."

Mark Nettle, Director of Student Services at Uxbridge College, said: "Giving students the chance to learn important life skills such as safety on the roads is a key part of what Uxbridge College does. Having the RED driving simulator on site as part of Road Safety Week is a great way to get young people involved in this in a fun way which gets them thinking."

A presentation on safe driving was also given to pupils at Bishopshalt School by Andy.

Over the years, RED Driving School's road safety unit has visited more than 500 schools and colleges across the UK to reinforce the road safety message, which can be tailored depending on the audience and its individual requirements.
