Stephen Savage, Project Manager at New Driver NI commented “The programme has been run for over five years now. Feedback from schools teachers and students is very positive. Making the pledge is a commitment to being as safe as possible on the roads. “Too many young people are still losing their lives or being seriously injured on the roads across Northern Ireland. We want to see these figures reduce every year.
The programme is completely free for schools as funding is provided by corporate sponsors including Charles Hurst First Time Buyer Centre, CRASH Services, Specsavers, Drivetech, Part of the AA, Hankook Tyres, AB&C Insurance and JMK Solicitors. The Department for Infrastructure and some Policing and Community Safety partnerships also provide support.
