Licence Bureau are running two of Brake’s hard hitting 2Young2Die workshops at Kings Langley secondary school on the 19th and 21st November during Road Safety Week. We will raise awareness surrounding the effects of driving distractions to 160 6th formers. Hertfordshire fire and rescue services also plan to perform a live crash extrication to demonstrate the potential devastation caused during the aftermath of a crash. Specsavers will also offer eye tests to the students, highlighting the importance of good vision and the need for regular tests. Local major employer Skanska also are support the initiative by hosting and providing training facilities for “2Young2Die” facilitators as well as raising awareness through their corporate PR team.
