South Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership is encouraging Sheffield United footballers of the future to improve their driving skills and knowledge by attending ‘Drive for Life’.
The two hour interactive programme is designed to enable drivers to make sensible and safe decisions when out on the roads. Issues such as having the correct documentation, speed, drink/drug driving, wearing seatbelts and distractions are all covered.
Ron Reid, director of the Sheffield United Academy, said: “As well as playing football, our players are role models to the public and initiatives such as this help us to develop a socially responsible team."
John Richardson, Drive for Life presenter, said: “Drive for Life is free and I encourage all young people to come along to a future event. This initiative aims to raise their road safety awareness and help them to avoid becoming a statistic."
