A new hard hitting campaign aimed at reducing the number of young people involved in road collisions began today in Southern Scotland.

The Safe Drive Stay Alive event is being held over 2 days and is making hundreds of teenagers, many of whom are taking their driving lessons, aware of the dangers that can lie behind the wheel.

Hundreds of students from across Dumfries and Galloway will be shown a reconstructed crash scene, and will hear from Emergency Services personnel, Police Scotland, and the victims of road traffic accidents.
