INTERACTIVE LEARNING PROJECT
Filming is underway for a project that encourages teenagers to think about the consequences of being involved in a road traffic collision.
Officers from South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership (SYSRP) have been working with a team of specialists to create a bespoke on-line referral session for 14 to 16-year-olds.
The session will include an e-learning module with members of South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue providing advice on making impulsive decisions when it comes to road safety.
A spokesman for SYSRP said: “The project aims to use behavioural change techniques to encourage ‘at risk’ young people to consider the consequences and the long term regret they may have if involved in a road incident.
“By thinking about potential scenarios and hearing from the fire service, we hope that the intervention will prevent future casualties and collisions on our roads.”
