  • West Yorkshire Fire Service - Road Safety

    17th July 2017 - The Elland Academy

    Last week we were visited by West Yorkshire fire service who spoke and in some cases shocked our students in regards to consequences relating to car safety.

    The facts about seatbelts

    • In a crash you're twice as likely to die if you don't wear a seatbelt.
    • Drivers and passengers aged 17-34 have the lowest seatbelt-wearing rates combined with the highest accident rate.
    • There is evidence that people are less likely to use seatbelts on short or familiar journeys - this puts them at serious risk of injury in a crash.
