THE Young Driver event at Dalriada School in Ballymoney takes place this Wednesday.
Organised by Ballymoney Road Safety committee in partnership with the PSNI, the event has three aspects - an observed drive assessment, manoeuvrability assessment and an exhibition in St. James’s Church hall.
The exercise will involve some 40 students from Dalriada and it is hoped a great deal of good will be taken away by those participating in making the roads a safer place.
During the event, a trophy will be presented to Dalriada School in memory of Shannan McCracken who tragically lost her life in a road accident just outside Ballymoney. Shannan was a highly respected member of the school and her passing caused much sadness.
Exhibitors at the event include Road Safety Committee/Council, PSNI, Fire and Rescue Service, Policing and Community Safety Partnership, Autoline, Kerr Insurance, CRASH, Health and Wellbeing (Coleraine Borough Council) and AA Drive Tech.
