For the sake of the next crash victim
IT is a shocking truth that it is only a matter of time before we will report the death of another young driver in this paper.
That young person is alive as you read this. They are fooling around with their mates, discovering music that makes them feel fantastic and dreaming of all the amazing things they want to do with their life.
But at some point in the near future that will all be snuffed out in an instant leaving behind a world of pain and suffering for their family and friends.
Statistics show one in five of all those killed or injured on the roads in Plymouth over the past five years have been aged between 17 and 24.

It is clear youth, inexperience and roads are a potentially deadly cocktail. So we welcome anything that can help save the lives of young drivers by forcing them realise what a perilous environment they are entering when they get behind the wheel or mount a motorbike.
The Learn 2 Drive initiative sets out to help young drivers wake up to those dangers and allow them to avoid making the mistakes from which they may not get the chance to learn a vital lesson.
It is in all our interests that this works – boy racers are an annoyance to other motorists at best and a deadly hazard at worst.
So, for the sake of all of us – and in particular for the sake of that young driver out there today not realising they are due to be the next statistic – we wish this project well.
