Police Road Safety Event
The Neighbourhood Policing Team will be running an event along with Lincs Fire & Rescue, Lincs Road Safety Partnership and Hunts Coach’s around road safety.
The event will be held in the main Market Place in Alford on Sat 29 Aug 2015 from 1000 – 1400.
There will be a car crash simulator for drivers and soon to be drivers to experience/ learn from as well as general advice from Police and Fire & Rescue around what we do at car crashes including the Fire Engine and Police vehicle to look round/ photo opportunity.
The coach company will be showing people about the “crush” zones on large vehicles and what a driver can and cannot see behind them as well as showing the children how to evacuate the bus in the event of an emergency as a lot of our children get the bus to school.
Come along and join in. If you have any questions please feel free to drop us an e-mail in reply to this one and we will get back to you asap.
Thank you all for your continued support.
