Don't Be a Loser Campaign West Sussex

September will see the launch of the Don't Be A Loser website working with young people between 17-25 across West Sussex to consider their driving behaviour. The website launch coincides with the latest mini-campaign on speeding and its consequences. The site will include a great interactive game that can win participants a variety of prizes, including track drives at Goodwood in a Ferrari to allow the winners to experience speed in the correct environment, 50 petrol vouchers, Nintendo Wis and free soft drink vouchers to encourage nominated drivers on nights out.

There will also be the opportunity to share experiences, photos and tips on a dedicated Facebook page. Everyone has a story to tell or an issue to share about the roads, petrol costs, insurance and other drivers etc euro this site gives young people a forum to let others know good or bad things they have experienced and share money saving tips and ideas. It is hoped that anyone visiting the site will post a picture of their car as in December there is a fantastic prize for one lucky visitor to the site as part of the Christmas Drink Drive campaign.

The Don't Be A Loser campaign began in July and August with a Summer Drink Drive campaign and in the New Year other issues to be addressed are Mobile Devices and Seatbelts. The website is supported by posters in colleges, sixth forms and various other locations, bus advertising and beer mats in pubs and clubs across the county The overall aim of the campaign is not to preach safety messages to young drivers but look to include them in discussing why they are having a higher proportion of serious accidents and work with them to consider what changes in their behaviour, and others, could make them safer.

It is also a great opportunity for them to share ways of saving money in what is a growing world of motoring costs. Whether your 17-25 or older please visit and spend a few minutes finding out what the site has to offer. But remember euro if you're not a young driver living in West Sussex you can't enter the competitions, but you may have some fun and learn something new.
