Safe Drive Stay Alive is an educational experience designed to engage the audience with the effects of their decisions as drivers and passengers on the road.
The presentation is based around powerful personal testimonies, which come from serving members of all 3 emergency services, parents of young people who have lost their lives in a road traffic collision, those left with life changing injuries following a collision and even those who have caused death or injury as a driver. It has been designed to make the audience aware of the nature and extent of personal tragedy and suffering a Road Traffic Collision causes.
It leaves those attending aware of their personal vulnerability and accountability as new drivers and is designed to impact in a positive way upon their attitude towards the concept of driving.
In previous years, the roadshow would be delivered live in schools, theatres or auditoriums across Dorset. As we are currently unable to visit schools due to the coronavirus pandemic, the team have produced a digital version of this powerful presentation, streamed live through Microsoft Teams. There is also the option of viewing the show as part of a wider lesson, written in alignment with British Values and a number of PSHE objectives in ‘Health and Wellbeing’ and ‘Relationships’. Designed to leave young people with a positive view of driving itself, as well as a realistic understanding of the potential dangers, the lesson can be delivered on the same day or as a follow up PSHE lesson.
Any number of classes/bubbles from any number of schools can dial in to view a single show. If Social Distancing restrictions mean you need several separate shows, please indicate each one you require. Booking can be done through the following links:
