Road safety education - drivers
We support the advanced driving tuition and better driving courses run by the local Institute of Advanced Motorists Group. We also provide driving and road safety courses to specified groups in association with Educational and Social Services.
In addition to pre-driver training courses in secondary schools, support is given to the pass plus scheme which offers new drivers insurance discounts if they take extra lessons on topics like driving on motorways and driving at night. Publicity materials for this group are also distributed.
Strathclyde Police, Strathclyde Fire and Rescue and the Driving Standards Agency offer presentations to secondary schools and the Council has informed all Head Teachers of the range of support available.
An Ayrshire-wide event hosted by South Ayrshire Council called 'Reckless Driving Wrecks Lives’ dramatically highlights the lasting effects of road crashes to senior secondary pupils.
In addition to organising car seat checks as part of a national initiative, the ‘Good Egg' free car seat checks are offered to all nurseries.
