Roadshow brings Roadsafe message to Mossley Mill

Year 14 students from across Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough received a hard-hitting lesson about road safety when they attended the Roadsafe Roadshow in the Theatre at the Mill.

The Roadshow uses powerful personal accounts of those who have been caught up in the carnage of road traffic collisions and dramatic film footage to deliver the message.  The event aims to have a positive influence on the driving behaviours of 17 and 18 year olds as they are beginning to take to the roads.  It also highlights the difficult and challenging job that our emergency services complete as they assist at the scene of a collision and the personal impact a serious incident can leave with people who work to help us when we need them most.

Upon leaving the Theatre, the young people experienced a re-enactment of a fatal car crash so the students witness firsthand the devastating impact that dangerous or careless driving can have on themselves and others.

Constable Jacky McDowell said “In partnership with Fire Service, NIAS and assistance from the PCSP we are pleased to have brought the PSNI Roadshow to Newtownabbey and Theatre at the Mill. It provides a unique insight into how the emergency services deal with a fatal collision through the compelling personal account of members from each of the services. The hard hitting road safety message was delivered to over 300 new and upcoming young drivers from the local schools, it is designed to challenge them and reinforce the message of staying safe on our roads.”


Antrim and Newtownabbey Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) brought the Roadsafe Roadshow to The Theatre At The Mill on Wednesday 6th March, and it was successfully delivered to over 300 pupils from schools across the Borough.  The Roadsafe Roadshow is a partnership between the Police Service of Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service.
