Contract for Life

Contract for Life is an emotive, interactive presentation produced and delivered by Somerset Road Safety in conjunction with the emergency services.


'Contract for Life' is a presentation aimed at students in year 11 or above. The aim of the presentation is to highlight the consequences of a collision, not only to a driver, but also to innocent victims such as pedestrians, passengers and other road users.

 

The campaign aims to reduce the high number of young people killed and seriously injured on Somerset’s roads. A third of all car casualties on the roads in Somerset involve young people mainly between the ages of 17 to 24. The presentation is based around a graphic DVD depicting a real crash. Police officers and firefighters attend and then talk to the young people about all aspects of road safety. At the end of the presentation the audience are given a contract for life that they can take away and sign, along with their parents or guardians or friends. In signing the contract they are agreeing not to put themselves or others at risk by the choices they make.
