Who knows their limit?
The charity ‘Brake’ came into the Academy last year to talk about road safety, it was here that we learnt about the horrifying facts of drink driving. In the UK, the battle against drink drivers is still raging. About one in six road deaths are caused by drink drivers. In 2009, there were seven deaths and 28 serious injuries every week caused by drink drivers. Brake is calling for a zero tolerance approach in the UK to send a clear message to drivers that it’s none for the road. At the same time, they want police enforcement to be stepped up, so the threat of being caught is greater, and awareness campaigns to address confusion about drink driving. Evidence suggests that these measures would help to stamp out the menace of drink driving.
This year the girls have chosen to look at the law against drink driving and how it could be changed, their film is in support of ‘Brake’ and making the UK a safer place for everyone by having a ‘ZERO’ tolerance drink drive limit in the UK.
We need your views to get us to London for the third year in a row. Previous years we have come 2nd in the nation wide competition and again this year we have high hopes. Please watch the video, share it on twitter and Facebook so as many people view it as possible.
