          The Eddie Irvine Sports Centre in Bangor, Northern Ireland

                                 on Tuesday 12th March 2013

      52 Students from Movilla High School will be taking part in this event.

In addition to the Acclaim Team, there will be presentations from:

                                 The Police Service Northern Ireland

                               Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service

                                   The St John’s Ambulance Service

    Crash Services - Will be demonstrating insurance black box technology

After the presentations students will also have the opportunity to use the Room 2 Race - simulators, this will be used to demonstrate the dangers of texting whilst driving. It is hoped to bring home to the young students the effect of texting whilst driving.

Acclaim have put this presentation together in order to make young students aware of how distractions and speed can easily cause accidents and the impending dangers that they can face when driving. Too many young people are involved in road traffic accidents and too many young lives are lost as a result and Acclaim aims to help to make young people aware of these dangers and to train them to be good safe drivers.

In Northern Ireland these events are held every two or three months. Various schools and colleges have taken part and brought their students to these events and Acclaim Driving welcome enquiries from all schools, colleges and youth groups etc. There is no charge for this service it is all part of the Acclaim Young Students Road Safety Programme.
