Had a fantastic day today being shown round the new Kent & Medway Road Safety Experience run by the Kent Fire Service (thanks Alexa!). The facility features a 100 seater auditorium with live demonstration area, driver awareness classrooms and high-tech interactive areas covering driver distraction, alcohol awareness, speed and braking distances. The facility will be used to educate anyone over the age of 14 about driver safety including school groups and business drivers.
We’re developing a new series of business engagement events on behalf of Highways England, in conjunction with a range of road safety partners, that will show employers why better management of work related road safety can make them more profitable, as well safer and more compliant. The first of these will be held the Road Safety Experience in July.
