Our Fixers film was shown to a group of young people in Conwy on 11th July. Here is what some of them had to say about our resource and campaign.
Michael (18): ‘It makes you realise how easy it is to get distracted by other people - don't drink and drive.'
Lucy (17): 'Shocking - shows how reckless some people can be. Don't drive with dangerous people, be responsible.'
Jasmine (18): 'Makes you think twice and realise how at risk you are when in vehicles.'
Kyle (17): ‘Made me realise how lucky I am – I’ve been in a car crash.’
Joe (17): 'It was a good film that showed what can happen if you distract the driver and it really opened my eyes towards it.'
Ali (18): ‘It was very good and informative. Very well written and directed.'
I attended the Fixers Road Savvy Forum in London.
It brought together Fixers, politicians, road safety experts and representatives from the emergency services.
Transport Minister Stephen Hammond and former footballer and TV presenter Gary Lineker were among those there.
The day was split into two sessions. In the morning I took part in a workshop, discussing the key road safety issues facing young people today.
In the afternoon, a forum was held where politicians and road safety professionals were given the chance to put questions to a panel of Fixers.
Conclusions from the event are going to be presented to the Department for Transport in a ‘Fixers Green Paper’ as a contribution to the Government’s forthcoming Road Safety Green Paper.
Following my attendance at the Fixers Road Savvy Forum, I was featured on ITV News Wales to discuss road safety in young people. You can watch the full broadcast by clicking here.
