Police road safety roadshow hits the streets

By johnboy 29 July 2009 21

Simon Corbell has proudly announced a new road safety show and tell to try and “ram home the safe driving message”.

(I normally find that messages which require brute force are of dubious merit, but let’s move on)

    The attention-grabbing display, entitled Real Decisions, Real Consequences has as its focus a wrecked vehicle from a fatal collision which occurred on Constitution Avenue, Campbell, on Friday, June 13, 2008.

    The incident resulted in the death of 19-year-old Ben Taylor and the imprisonment of Ahmed Alzabbi.

    Display banners and an audio-visual presentation recount the story of that Friday night when five friends went drinking in nightclubs in Civic. On the way home their Lexus coupe reached speeds of at least 130 km/h on Constitution Avenue, a 60 km/h zone.

I’m not entirely sure how much images of destruction excite rather than deter, but it’s worth a try.

UPDATED: Police media have kindly sent through the photograph from the launch today at Dickson College.

What’s Your opinion?

Very sensible words and I agree whole heartedly.
