Licence Bureau and Skanska deliver local workshops for Road Safety Week
The events, which are being held for the third consecutive year, see both companies working with sixth-form students from The Hemel Hempstead and Kings Langley School.
These workshops will educate the community’s younger generation on how to safely navigate UK roads, whether this is on foot, bicycle or behind the wheel.
The workshops are being run by 11 road safety professionals from Licence Bureau and Skanska. Together, they will educate local students on important lessons, such as assessing vulnerable road users, the dangers of being distracted behind the wheel, demonstrating the potential dangers of the road through videos and imagery, and the consequences of being involved in road traffic incidents.
Licence Bureau and Skanska’s sessions will run alongside Brake’s road safety theme of ‘drive less, live more’ during Road Safety Week. This will look to encourage those in local communities to consider how they use roads, and if they can use alternative transport methods to driving, such as walking, cycling or using public transport, to ultimately reduce incidents on UK roads.
Malcolm Maycock, managing director of Licence Bureau, said: “We are very pleased to partner with Skanska once again to deliver invaluable road safety lessons to sixth form students in the Dacorum region. It’s important to instil basic road safety messages with the region’s younger road users, not only in the approaching winter months, but before local students take to the roads. They are the next generation of drivers and lessons learned now could ultimately save lives in the future.”
