Cheap Car Insurance for Teenagers
40,000 people have been killed on Britain's roads, since 1993. A big percentage of those were young drivers.
"Teenagers that are new to driving want to experience what these wonderful motor cars can do -they use these country lanes to have this experience of speed and they can't cope with it." Senior policeman
Increasing numbers of teenage drivers are being killed in accidents
It is estimated that as many as one in five of all serious road accidents involve drivers under the age of 21. In Warwickshire the police are keeping a close eye on their young drivers.
Old and badly maintained cars pose a big risk in themselves. The addition of speed can have devastating results, as Paul Kerr can testify.
In 1992 Paul lost his 17 year old son in a road accident. He now works alongside PC Alan Rogers on a project called ASTRA, to take his message and his son's story around every school in Warwickshire.
ASTRA targets teenagers and drives home the message through advertising campaigns and Paul's own moving account of his son's tragic death.
