Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership – 2Fast2Soon
The programme is aimed at educating, training and protecting drivers aged 17-24.
The hard-hitting 2Fast2Soon initiative presents emotive messages in the form of an educational drama based on real events, combined with follow-up workshops and practical training to alter dangerous driving behaviours.
Phase one of the programme is a realistically-presented educational drama, this is done in a theatre and has so far been shown to over four thousand young adults.
The second phase involves classroom-based activities and workshops focused on informing young drivers of the consequences of driving at excessive speed and teaching them responsibility for their actions in a vehicle. Participants are also asked to draft up and sign a ‘safe driving charter,’ reinforcing their commitment.
Lastly, a third phase of the initiative integrates practical driving training with the previously delivered classroom-based knowledge. This is presented by experienced trainers and teaches how to avoid hazardous driving conditions such as loss of vehicle control.
