Be Wiser Insurance

Young people in Herefordshire are to be informed of the dangers they face when taking to the road by a vehicle safety organisation, a local news source claims.

The Hereford Times states that Time and Place is looking to expand into the area in order to spread its road safety message to local schools and colleges.

It may be that taking precautions now results in a safer region, which could see car insurance companies take note and drop the price of their policies.

Time and Place was rewarded for its efforts with a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award last year and now its founder, Jimmy Martin, is hoping to bring such success to Hereford.

According to UK law, young people cannot take to the road until they reach the age of 17.

Even then, they need to be accompanied by a driving instructor or a motorist with five years highways experience.
