March saw us complete our hard-hitting Road Safety theatre tour – Dead End, on behalf of Safer Essex Roads Partnership. The tour reached 47 schools and 9,000 students. The evaluation results were the best ever with students who recognise the Fatal Four (causes of KSIs on the road) increasing by 84% as a result of the events.
Dead End is a hard hitting theatre piece that tells real stories of crashes involving young people. It powerfully signposts the main causes of KSIs – speeding, alcohol / drugs, distraction (such as mobile phones), and not wearing seatbelts. It also shows the human cost of crashes which destroy lives everyday:
“It’s funny though because just before we hit it I had a million thoughts about my parents… what they were going to say about this… how angry my Dad was going to be… and how I just knew I didn’t want to die yet. Not yet. Not now… like this.” Michelle from Dead End
