This statistic is from research conducted by Road Safety Analysis in 2013 in support of the Drive it Home campaign. The report highlighted just how dangrous the roads are for young rural drivers.
Many Young Farmers’ Clubs have lost members in tragic road accidents and as the majority of our members live and work in rural communities, NFYFC wanted to do something to save lives on rural roads.
NFYFC launched the Drive it Home campaign, supported by NFU Mutual, in November 2012.
The Drive it Home campaign aims to:
Become a Drive It Home Champion
One member from each county can go on a Brake 2young2die training course and become a Drive It Home Champion; promoting road safety in your local area. The courses take place across the country and each place is kindly paid for by NFU Mutual. Click on the 'Brake Courses' tab to find out more!
Go on a Brake Course
Brake is also running 2young2die courses in each of the seven NFYFC areas throughout the year, especially for YFC members. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to book a place.
NFYFC has teamed up with Drive Doctors to offer fun, interactive taster days to members, including practical and classroom sessions on wet-grip and off-road driving. Click the 'Drive Doctors' tab to find out more!
