Blakemore Logistics has held awareness sessions for more than 700 pupils from across the West Midlands as part of its annual Road Safety Week campaign (18-22 November).
Year 7 students from five different secondary schools took part in the event, which ran alongside the charity Brake’s national campaign.
The campaign saw Blakemore Logistics volunteers giving a live vehicle demonstration to highlight the dangers of playing near large heavy goods vehicles, followed by different classroom-based activities for students.
“I really enjoyed the session. I liked getting to sit in the lorry and see the inside. I also learnt about road safety,” said Harry, Year 7 student at St Thomas More Catholic School.
The campaign sessions were also held at the Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton, Sandwell Academy, Walsall Academy and Pool Hayes Academy.
