Competition to find the safest driver in Cambridgeshire is hosted at our Huntingdon campus
Cambridgeshire Police officers were at our Huntingdon campus to host a competition to find the county’s safest young driver.
The event was part of a week of road safety events involving education and enforcement to reduce deaths and serious injuries.
Students were encouraged to take an advanced driving class with volunteers from charity organisation, the Insitute of Advanced Motorists, who tested their knowledge and skill.
The story was covered in a report on BBC Look East and the overall winner was named as 25 year old Laruen Cope.
The safer driving day was among activities for a rural road speed awareness campaign.
Superintendent James Sutherland said: ““Sadly, thousands of people are still injured on our roads and the purpose of this activity is to enforce dangerous behaviour and educate users on how to stay safe in order to save lives and reduce these statistics. We can all play a part in making our roads safer and within 24 hours, we want to take as many dangerous vehicles and drivers off the road as possible. We will be carrying out a whole range of activity from catching speeding drivers to educating cyclists.”
