Shock tactics teach students that death kills

More than 1,000 County Mayo (Ireland) students attended a road safety event where the tragic consequences of dangerous driving were illustrated.

Graphic crash imagery was used to tell the story of how a night out ended in tragedy and permanent disability for one young driver.

The students heard first hand accounts from the family member of a deceased road traffic accident victim, as well as a car crash survivor. The show used live performance, reconstructed crash sites, video and shock tactics to teach teens not to become another statistic.

Noel Gibbons, RSO, said shock tactics are what really gets through to young people in the highest risk group. "I have no doubt that the road show shocks our young audience and we think that’s necessary to show them the perils of driving dangerously," he said.
