Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Safety Partnership is bringing its car crash simulator to Ballymoney on Friday 24th March.

The PCSP has joined forces with the PSNI and NIFRS for the road safety event. Along with the simulator, two road traffic collision demonstrations will be played out, with fire fighters using cutting equipment to show what happens in a real life crash scenario.

It’s hoped the initiative will encourage better driving and a safer approach to getting behind the wheel. PCSP Chairman, Alderman William King, said: “With schools preparing for their Easter holidays, the PCSP and the emergency services want to take the opportunity to emphasise the need for safety on the roads at all times.

The crash simulator provides a timely reminder of the potential consequences which can result from poor decisions. “The accident demonstrations are a powerful way to share the road safety message and I hope by working together we can make the roads a safer place. All drivers should remember to slow down, never use a mobile phone behind the wheel, wear their seatbelt and never, ever drink and drive.” The event begins in Ballymoney town centre at 3pm. –
