Road safety organisation Brake has teamed up with Cheshire county council to bring down the number of injuries and deaths involving young people.

According to the body, 222 people aged between 15 and 25 were killed in traffic collision in the region over the course of 2005.

To put across the importance of road safety, Sarah Collins from the group will host a presentation to sixth-form students at Falibroome High School in Macclesfield.

It may be that taking heed of the advice now saves from making claims on their car insurance in the future and paying more for premiums.

"I hope that by teaching young people about the consequences of speeding, drink and drug driving and not belting up, I can make real difference to road safety in Cheshire," said Ms Collins.

Brake this week commented that two out of three drivers in the UK are unaware of the legally-required tyre tread depth for their vehicles.
