Safe Drive, Stay Alive

Sadly, I missed this display last week. Hopefully some of you didn't. Having driven the road to Peterhead Academy and back successfully for about 7 years, a good day was one in which I wasn't almost killed by speeding, dangerous or inconsiderate drivers. Hitting a patch of black ice on the dual carriageway at Balmedie doesn't count, 5 other cars weren't so 'lucky' that day.

In 2006, 62 people died on Grampian's roads. 25 of those who died were under the age of 25. A further 217 were seriously injured. Almost half of the fatal collisions involved drivers under 25 years old.

Figures from the Safe Drive, Stay Alive information poster. They also have a Grampian-specific micro-site.
