Cut It Out – Stay Safe on Fife’s Roads

Cut It Out – a road safety initiative by Fife Community Safety Partnership – is set to make an impact on young drivers and passengers.

The event, to be held at Fluthers Car Park, Cupar on Friday 2nd May from 7-9pm, is open to all and will include a staged accident with real vehicles to show how all emergency services work together to save lives and encourage road safety.

Members of the public will also be able to speak to professionals and take part in interactive stalls, including a driving simulator and a collision simulator to highlight the importance of wearing seat belts.

Police Scotland Fife Division’s Road Policing Inspector Brenda Sinclair explained the rationale for the event’s location: “In North East Fife, accidents have become more prevalent because of the amount of rural and single carriageway roads. Young drivers are also more at risk, accounting for only 12.7% of license holders but are linked to 22% of Road Traffic Collisions and 27% of fatal Road Traffic Collisions on Fife’s roads.”

Provost of Fife Jim Leishman encouraged all young drivers and passengers to attend on Friday 2nd May. “Fife Community Safety is working across Fife to raise awareness about how to stay safe on Fife’s roads, looking to target areas and individuals most at risk of accidents. The innovative Cut it Out campaign is all about going out to the local North East Fife community, and highlighting not only the risks but also the consequences of unsafe driving.”
