It’s National Road Safety Week, when drivers are reminded of their own responsibility when out on the roads.
Raising awareness of the importance of road safety, Warrington & Vale Royal College’s Health & Safety Officer, Nicola Baker, has planned a number of activities across Warrington and Winsford campuses.
Today, Warrington Fire Station’s White Watch were at Warrington campus speaking to students about a number of issues including this year’s Road Safety Week theme, ‘Bike Smart’.
Watch Manager Chris Storey and Firefighters Colin Wright and Stefan Hornby, were reminding students to be Bike Smart to protect cyclists and motorcyclists, but also issued advice about mobile phone use, winter driving conditions and cooking safety. Students were also able to practise driving under different conditions using a driving simulator.
Earlier in the week the college welcomed Warrington Road Safety and Change Grow Live who delivered road safety presentations and set-up a bar ‘with a difference’, teaching students to become unit savvy on alcohol consumption.
Throughout December Cheshire Police will be visiting both campuses delivering their ‘Bike Smart’ campaign.
