For My Girlfriend - North Lincolnshire

FMGSafer Roads Humber, the road safety partnership for the Humber region, is holding a For My Girlfriend crash enactment on 9th February to demonstrate to students the importance of driving safely.

Drama students from North Lindsey College will be involved in the mock crash and will be rescued from a crash car by the emergency services, whilst their fellow students look on.

The crash will not only show students how the emergency services have to rescue young people from crashes but also explore the issues around why the crash occurred in the first place.

During the event, the young male car driver will be breathalysed and questioned by the police. Whilst the injuries sustained by the passengers will clearly show the potentially fatal consequences of not wearing a seat belt, the event will also explore the influence (both good and bad) that friends have on a young driver whilst in their car.

The event involves Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, Humberside Police, North Lincolnshire Council and East Midlands Ambulance Service. It is hoped that the air ambulance will also be available to play a part on the day.

The event is being held at North Lindsey College, Scunthorpe, 11am – 12noon, Thursday 9 February. 

This is the third time the partnership has held a For My Girlfriend event and feedback has always been very positive.
