Rallying call for dangerous drivers

12.00 | 6 September 2012 | | 1 comment

Channel 5 is to run a new series of ‘Dangerous Driving School’ and the programme makers are seeking “dangerous, nervous or unconfident drivers” to feature in the new series.

The programme’s stated mission is to “make our roads safer by converting dangerous drivers into safe, confident drivers”. Matchlight, the independent production company behind the programme, says that last year’s series turned 18 “accidents waiting to happen into safer drivers”.

Amy Hawes, a researcher for the programme, said: “We are specifically looking for people with real and serious driving phobias and issues that are really taking a toll on their lives.

“Particularly of interest are nervous male drivers or older drivers who are perhaps losing confidence, or conversely are looking for a way to prove to their friends and families that they are still safe on the road.

“Do you have a daughter with a need for speed, or is your husband petrified at getting behind the wheel? Does your friend drive so badly you refuse to be their passenger, or are your grandparents housebound because they refuse to use their car? Do you suffer from road rage and think everyone but you should get off the road? If yes, then help is at hand.”

For more information or to nominate someone who may be suitable to participate in the programme contact Amy Hawes on 0141 332 0319.

    I recall watching the last series of DDS and it was very good. If Ch5 read this, please don’t dumb down. Keep up the serious nature of the programme, despite the gawdy title!
