UPS Road Code

One in four 18-24 year olds (23%) crash within two years of passing their driving test & road deaths are the single biggest killer of young people today.

Due to the likelihood of risky behaviors of young drivers, passengers are immediately more at risk when in the car with a young driver, with 91% of young people aged 17-25 admitting that they have felt uncomfortable in the passenger seat of a car, with 41% of these people choosing not to speak out and ask the driver to concentrate.

NE Youth are teaming up with UK Youth & UPS to deliver Road Code, a programme that aims to increase the confidence of young people to speak up in potentially dangerous situations.

These workshops last for half a day and include a variety of activities, such as virtual reality and a ‘behind the wheel’ driving simulator!

If you would like NE Youth to deliver this workshop at your youth club/project please email louise@neyouth.org.uk!
