Crash Car Simulator Event Lisbellaw

 

Fermanagh and Omagh Policing and Community Safety Partnership, in partnership with the PSNI, hosted a Speed Awareness event at Lisbellaw Parish Centre on Friday 19 May 2017 in response to concerns about speeding in the area.

The simulator is a joint “safer driving” initiative between Fermanagh and Omagh and Mid Ulster Policing and Community Safety Partnerships which allows young drivers to experience the devastating consequences of driving irresponsibly, including the potential for injury and death, through the simulation of a car crash.

The Crash Car simulator is part of Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP’s Road Safety Education Programme. Speaking at the event in Lisbellaw, the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP, Councillor Keith Elliott, said:

“Too many young people have been killed on our roads. Two of the most common factors in road accidents are inattentiveness and excessive speed. While speeding is an issue in this area, I am confident that the graphic nature of this simulation will help to deter local drivers from speeding through the village.

I would like to thank all those involved in delivering this event in Lisbellaw to help address local concerns. I would also like to thank the PSNI for its continued support, working in partnership with Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP to deliver events and initiatives such as these.”

The Crash Car Simulator is a modified standard car fitted with a high quality sound system, hydraulics, DVD player, smoke and light system. It was developed with funding from the Assets Recovery Community Scheme (ARCS), administered by the Department of Justice.
