An new initiative to reduce the number of Young Driver Fatalities
The age group of 17-20 are almost 10 times more likely to be killed or seriously injured than any other group of drivers. Theatre in Education had been used to raise the dangers of driving to young people – but was it still working? Did we need something new?
Nottingham City Council Road Safety Department engaged Dropbox Productions to research and design a new educational project based on real trial transcripts of dangerous driving involving young people. We also co-ordinated the involvement of the Emergency Services and the Judiciary. The final production was piloted successfully and is now being rolled out to schools throughout Nottingham.
Court in Time is only one initiative in a wider strategy being implemented by Nottngham City Council’s Road Safety Department.
Nottingham has achieved zero fatalities for the drivers of the 17-25 age group during the previous three years. This compares with an average of six per year ten to twelve years ago.
