On Monday the 9th of April Ms Monk’s Module class hosted a Road Safety Day. We were lucky enough to host the Road safety shuttle and turn over cage to come to our school for all fourth years to try. In the shuttle there were many different simulations that replicated real life driving situations, for example driving in the rain, driving at night, driving a motorcycle. Also there were mock theory tests, dance games and many other fun activities. The most exciting part of the entire day, in my opinion, was the roll over cage. The roll over cage consisted of a car which had no wheels or engine that was attached to a machine that turned it 360 degrees. We were strapped in with ordinary seatbelt and also waist belts to that we weren’t injured. This was a very valuable experience as it gave us a small taste of what it would be like to be in a real accident. Along with that, the RSA asistants told us the correct procedure for getting out of a crashed car, what to do when your seat belt is stuck and many more valuable lessons.
All in all it was a really fun day that was so enlightening and valuable, we hope to never experience a road accident but we are so glad that we have these tips to help us out.
