A powerful message will be driven home to local people next week as the Safe Drive, Stay Alive event comes to Orkney.
‘Safe Drive, Stay Alive, explores the circumstances and consequences of a road traffic collision.
A film is interspersed with the on-stage interjections of local faces from the emergency services describing from their experiences what attending and dealing with the aftermath of a road traffic collision is really like – from dealing with casualties to breaking difficult news to loved ones.
The effect is hard-hitting and the intention is that those attending will take home a lifelong appreciation of the responsibility that comes with driving - that they can then discuss with young drivers in their family.
The event takes place on Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.00pm in the Orkney Theatre at Kirkwall Grammar School.
