Shocking film to save lives

Have your say

A POWERFUL film about the dangers faced by motorcyclists is being shown to 15 and 16-year-olds in a bid to drive down collisions.

Teenagers in the film are actors but the stories they tell are based on real life incidents.

The film will be screened by the Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership.

Meanwhile in Derbyshire eleven motorists were stopped by police for not wearing seatbelts in a crackdown on those flouting the law.

Another four were stopped for using their mobile phones and two were pulled up for speeding offences on the A623 between Housley and Foolow.

Sgt Andy Wordsworth said: “All motorists have a responsibility to make sure their vehicles are safe. It is also important drivers make sure they drive carefully.”
