Safe Drive Stay Alive

Safe Drive Stay Alive is an innovative theatre education project, exploring the circumstances and consequences of a road traffic collision. Aimed at 16 to 18 year olds in the Thames Valley, a film of a crash in the local area has been specially prepared, with roads and hospitals familiar to local students.

As the drama unfolds and the emergency services arrive on the scene, the faces on film literally step onto stage. Pausing the film for a moment, they speak to the audience about their experiences, the reactions of the driver and passengers, the medical implications and how seeing such trauma affects them personally. Until the end, the audience is unsure which of the car's occupants will make it.

Safe Drive Stay Alive is produced by a road safety partnership including Thames Valley Police, local councils, and Thames Valley’s emergency services. Each partner has been working for years to reduce the number of people dying on the roads.

The Safe Drive Stay Alive campaign aims to reach new and pre-drivers in an emotive and hard-hitting way, influencing behaviour and attitude on the roads.
