Who We Are
We are a locally based charity that aims to provide education and information to young people and the general public. We do this by providing presentations on road safety at local schools and events. These sessions often use modern technology such as VR headsets/Simulators to make the sessions interactive. We also provide funding which allows young people to participate in road safety courses.Read More
What we do
We aim is to help reduce the number of people that lose their lives needlessly every year due to road traffic collisions. We hope that by providing interactive and educational sessions, that promote good road safety, that this will help influence the next generation of drivers to have a positive impact on our roads.Read More
What people say
All of the students were fully engaged throughout and thoroughly enjoyed the activities as well so even though there was the fun element they learned valuable lessons as well. All of the activities complemented each other and reinforced the need/importance for road safety in a fun, safe whilst informative way.
Yes, it was a great experience and all the students were engaged and they used the VR technology and Beer goggles to experience a crash and what it would be like to drive drunk! SmartLearner, who hosted the event were very organised and gave a great overall explanation about the importance of safe driving. Need them every year to really educate them
We felt the Because Your Life Counts Team did a great job at educating our students but what made it excellent was the interactive activities held throughout. This really got the students fully engaged. We will definitely be looking at getting them back in.
