Popular TV series Police Interceptors have been filming the work of Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership (LRSP) for episodes to be screened in the New Year.
And as a close partnership of LRSP, AW Repair Group was delighted to go along to see the film crews in action.
Infact AW’s Jade Johnson took part in filmed demonstrations of LRSP’s road safety programme.
Firstly we were put into their state of the art skid training vehicle and with the flip of a switch the suspension changes and throws you into a 360 spin! The skid training vehicle simulates driving on ice, slippery roads and aquaplaning. During the training we learnt how to handle tricky situations and build our driving skills, in a fun and friendly way.
Next we experienced a car crash in LRSP’s crash car simulator, which really hit a nerve and really makes you think what you would do in that situation. We got to take the trusty Peugeot 205 GTi for a spin, which AW Repair Group repainted for LRSP in March 2013, which was great fun! Finally, we took to the PlayStation for a timed challenge against each other.
Whilst we were having fun on these exercises we were in a controlled environment and it’s easy to forget that this could really happen to you when you are least expecting it. But I would really recommend the driving training courses that LRSP offer, it’s a skill that will stay with you for life and something we wouldn’t have the opportunity to learn without the fantastic work by Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership’s team.
As well as driver training courses LRSP deliver their hard hitting 2Fast2Soon production to schools around the region.
