More than 60 students were involved in the activities which included a presentation about the consequences of driving dangerously and under the influence of alcohol, computer simulated brake reaction and hazard perception tests.

There were also demonstrations of rescuing a badly-injured motorist from a car

NNC Public Services Lecturer Debbie Hibbard said: “The programme has really made an impact on the students – many of whom are considering a career in the Fire Service – and brought it home to us all on the hazards faced on the road as motorists and passengers.”
