Ulster University students in the driving seat for Road Safety Week

Ulster University students have been putting their driving skills to the test as part of this year’s Road Safety Week.

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS) has been at Ulster University to provide students with advice on how to stay safe on the roads, especially in the run up to the festive season. Students have also been taking part in the driving simulator to learn more about the dangers of impaired and distracted driving.

Northern Ireland has seen the highest road traffic death rates in years with 71 fatal collisions since the start of the year. Road Safety Week is designed to raise awareness of the part motorists can play in preventing accidents and making roads safer. It is organised by international road awareness charity, Brake, and delivered locally by the NIFRS.
