Cork Sports Partnership have linked up with the RSA Road Safety Promotion Team to increase awareness of the Road Safety workshops and training programmes available to schools in Cork.
Your Life – Your Choice, promoted by Cork County Council, is the first virtual reality (VR) programme of its kind in this country. It is aimed at younger drivers who are among the most vulnerable road-users. Passenger fatalities are highest in the 16-25 age group. The VR units simulate a serious road incident, with the viewer participating in the passenger seat of a VR car.
Viewers witness many of the dangerous behaviours and factors associated with young drivers involved in serious collisions, including mobile phone use, speed, stopping distance, distraction, and rural roads. They also witness, from the passenger seat, the immediate aftermath of a serious incident from when first responders arrive on the scene.
Secondary Schools in Cork City and County are invited to express their interest in a new Virtual Reality Road Safety Programme.
Schools interest should complete the online form below.
