Sandwell turns to social media

10.37 | 24 November 2010 |

Sandwell’s road safety team has launched a Facebook page in a bid to reach younger drivers.

The Facebook page is designed to complement, a young driver magazine produced by Sandwell and sold across the country.

John Billington, from the road safety team, said: “We try and keep the Facebook content relevant and current with two or three new features each week. It’s early days but the number of fans is slowly rising.

“We keep the stories short and 95% of them are relevant to anyone across the country. It’s obviously very important to reach young people through social media.

"We are extremely keen to encourage young drivers across the country to access the site and become fans."

The next edition of the magazine will be available in 2011. Issues three and four are still available for purchase. Click here to order a copy or contact John Billington for more information.
