CSI (Crash Scene Incident) is a Road Traffic Collision Road Show, aimed primarily at the 17-24 year olds, who are identified as being our most at risk group and discusses the consequences of these horrific life-changing incidents.
Our aim being to dramatically reduce the number of killed and seriously injured on our roads in South Wales.
South Wales Fire and Rescue Service and Road Safety Officers from 10 local authorities across South Wales, have joined forces to bring this initiative to students in schools, sixth forms and colleges across the region.
The event involves groups of students who receive an initial theory presentation at the college or school. This focuses on how one road crash can affect lots of different people in addition to the actual casualties and their families.
Following this the students are then taken outside and presented with the sight of a real crashed car, mounted on a trailer. This vehicle, a Vauxhall Corsa, was previously involved in an actual collision, which saw its 18 year old owner lucky to escape with his life, primarily because he was wearing his seatbelt.
The students are then talked through the dangers involved in driving such as; drink and drugs, inappropriate speed and the improper use of seatbelts.
