Learn 2 Live

Learn 2 Live is one of our road safety campaigns which are aimed at reducing the number of young people killed or seriously injured on our roads. The event pulls no punches and enables us to talk to young people about the importance of taking care whilst driving and highlights the impact of careless driving.

Statistically 17 to 24 year olds are more likely to be killed or seriously injured in a road traffic collision than any other age group. Young women are particularly vulnerable; with more young women dying in the passenger seat than behind the steering wheel. This is often caused by young men trying to impress.

The Learn 2 Live events aim to educate and raise awareness with young people, improve driving standards, increase their responsibilities as passengers and try to encourage young people to report dangerous and anti-social driving. The event is a partnership between ourselves, police, ambulance, primary care trust and the local authority.

A DVD showing a typical night out for a group of young people is played and as the scenario unravels, it is paused with presentations from live speakers who talk about their real experiences. The impact of these real life stories hits home to the audience the reality of dangerous driving.

Learn 2 Live is used throughout Devon and several events are held throughout the year. Please click on the link to view the external website and/or follow them on Facebook.
