Welcome to the QuadSquad Road Safety Programme for young people 
between the ages of 13 - 21 years.

By use of our theory and practical resources, we aim to help save lives in the future due to more sensible driving and improved road skills. 


Why the QuadSquad Road Safety Programme?
1200 young people die in road traffic accidents every year in the UK, a disproportionately high amount of those deaths are in Lancashire.

The main reason for this is that young people generally take more risks. Inexperience and a lack of understanding of the real causes and consequences of accidents, leads to unnecessary deaths and destroyed lives within our community.

 

Young people participate in a road safety training session in which they examine the consequences of speeding and irresponsible driving. After the road safety theory session we swap the classroom for Forrest Hills, our outdoor venue in Lancaster. The young people are taught basic quad riding/driving skills linked to manoeuvrability, control and awareness of other vehicles, before being lead on a Trek around several acres of country side.



'Car crashes eclipse violent crime as killer of the young'

11 May 2011

Road accidents eclipse stabbings, shootings, suicide by hanging and substance abuse combined, as the biggest cause of death amongst the young other than illness.

Between the ages of 15-24 a person is seventeen times more likely to die on the roads, than be fatally assaulted with a weapon, including guns and knives.

Members of this age group are four times more likely to die in a road crash than from drug or alcohol poisoning. And they are 2.5 times more likely to be killed on the roads than kill themselves by hanging.

These are amongst the grim statistics uncovered by Elizabeth Box of the RAC Foundation to coincide with the launch of the UN Decade of Action on Road Safety on 11th May 2011.

In 2009, a total of 2,605 people died in Great Britain and Northern Ireland in road accidents. While this was only 0.5% of all deaths in that year, it accounts for a quarter of fatalities amongst those aged 15-19
