‘Your Choice’ Road Safety Programme Reaches 500 Young People

SERC Downpatrick student Padraig was the 500th young person to experience NIFRS’s ‘Your Choice’ road safety education programme recently during an event held at the college as part of Road Safety Week 2018. The ‘Your Choice’ programme targets young drivers and passengers aged 16 – 24 using virtual reality technology to place them into a hard hitting road safety scenario via specially designed goggles. NIFRS has been delivering the programme to young people throughout Northern Ireland to highlight the consequences of poor decision making on the road. Padraig is pictured with NIFRS Group Commander, Gerry Lennon.
