Safer driving course for young people in Audley and Queen’s Park area

First published in News

BLACKBURN with Darwen’s Casualty Reduction Team is running a free practical driving course for young people in the Audley and Queen’s Park area.

The course is specifically aimed at equipping young people with awareness, and appreciation, of road safety. It will involve a theory workshop, followed by off-road practical tuition in a controlled and safe environment.

Coun Maureen Bateson, executive member for regeneration, said: “It is a known fact that most car accidents occur in the early stages of motoring life and ,with car ownership increasing, it is a growing concern. This educational course aims to address these main causes in delivering both a theory and practical session, in order to understand how to spot, and avoid, potential dangers when driving.”

Taxpayers money being used inappropriately yet again. Why is this not all in this age group in the borough. Last time I saw this was it not in the other mainly Asian area. I know young Asians are more fanatical with there cars but if it saves a life it should be open to all. Or do they not really give a toss about road safety just buying votes!

Maybe teaching children how to cross the road safely might be better money spent. Also these young drivers who have passed their test shouldnt need extra help. Try helping more areas bwdc
