New road safety initiative to give students realistic experience of road traffic collisions

first_imgA new safety initiative to hammer home the message of the dangers on our roads, providing students with realistic experiences of a serious road traffic collision is now available to Secondary schools, Youthreach Centres and clubs in Donegal.Your Life – Your Choice, promoted by Donegal County Council and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group, is a road safety virtual reality (VR) programme, aimed at young drivers and passengers in the 16-25 age group who are among the most vulnerable road users16.The VR units simulate a serious road traffic collision, with the viewer participating in the passenger seat of a VR car. Viewers witness many of the dangerous behaviours and factors associated with young drivers involved in serious collisions, including mobile phone use, speed, stopping distance, distraction, and rural roads.They also witness, from the passenger seat, the immediate aftermath of a serious collision, when the emergency services arrive at the scene of the collision.Geoffrey Browne, Donegal ETB Chairperson said: “This technology allows every user wearing a headset to experience the stark reality of being trapped in a vehicle and to observe up close the work of the emergency services at the scene of a road traffic collision.We are reminding young people that they have a choice as to what kind of road user they and their passengers want to be.  Those decisions are vital for their safety and the safety of other road users. Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer said: “Sadly 16 to 24-year olds, and in particular young men, continue to be over-represented in the statistics for those killed or seriously injured on our roads.  This road safety initiative will encourage young people, to behave more responsibly behind the wheel.“This modern invention delivers a very clear message effectively and one that remains with the user long after watching the video clip. It is hoped that all students from transition year onwards will eventually be given a chance to try the device.”Martin Gormley, Director of Schools, Donegal ETB said “This programme will help to engage students in considering the role that they have in preventing deaths and serious injuries on the roads.“It is important to raise awareness of road safety issues and we hope that this programme will encourage our young motorists to think about their behaviour and promote safer driving practices.”If you are interested in the programme please contact [email protected] New road safety initiative to give students realistic experience of road traffic collisions was last modified: November 14th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Commentary Coaches expect players to Do as I say not as I

If Ohio State athletes are expected to follow the rules and to not confuse their status with power, OSU coaches and athletic administrators need to set a better example. On Tuesday, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles concluded its investigation into the purchase of 25 cars by OSU athletes, declaring that these purchases were legitimate. Included in the 65-page report from the BMV is a transcript of an investigation conducted by Tim Shaw, investigator for the BMV. Shaw’s transcription included an interview, conducted on May 12, with Aaron Kniffin, a former employee of Jack Maxton Chevrolet. In the interview, Kniffin said that no players or their family members received special deals on their cars. Also included in the report, Shaw recorded Kniffin as saying that several OSU coaches received cars to drive, in exchange for tickets. “Kniffin also stated that Jack Maxton owner Jeff Mauk received tickets from OSU coaches for giving them cars to drive,” Shaw reported. “Kniffin stated that this practice was common.” Common? Coaches are going to give tickets to car dealerships in exchange for the chance to drive nice cars, but expect the opposite from their players? Do as I say, not as I do. OSU coaches are making more than enough money to buy their own vehicles. The “common” practice of coaches trading tickets for their own personal gain is not an NCAA violation. University spokesman Jim Lynch told The Lantern that these exchanges are a part of a program written in the coach’s contract. Lynch said these practices are on-par with other Big Ten schools. But it doesn’t look good. On Aug. 16, 2010, the BMV conducted a separate investigation. Led by BMV investigators Tim Hughes and Todd Ballinger, this investigation made some interesting observations concerning dealer-plated cars. In their report, they dictated their visits to the Woody Hayes Athletic Complex to investigate this possible misuse of dealer tags given to players. They found that while they visited, a high number of vehicles in the parking lots surrounding the WHAC were owned by dealerships. They concluded that OSU coaches and administrators were driving these cars. Ballinger also reported that Doug Archie, an associate athletics director for compliance and camps at OSU, was driving a dealer-owned vehicle. “Archie advised that he has a dealer-plated vehicle and he gets the vehicle in exchange for tickets,” Ballinger reported. In the same report, Archie told investigators that there was only one reason a player would be driving a dealer-owned vehicle. “(An) OSU student athlete would only be allowed to operate a ‘loaner’ vehicle from (a) motor vehicle dealer if their personal vehicle was at the dealership for service or repair,” Ballinger reported. So why is there a double standard? OSU officials and coaches preach humility and service to their players, but what kind of lesson is that coming from someone trading football tickets to car dealerships to drive around a nice car? Currently, the NCAA does not have the jurisdiction to ban this “tickets for cars” practice, as long as it isn’t athletes making the trades. The university, however, has the power to control it. The university has a lot of issues to deal with currently, including a meeting with the NCAA on Aug. 12, but this is one issue that should be on their radar. While the NCAA may not consider this kind of activity to be “improper benefits,” every part about this “common” practice is improper, backwards and wrong. read more
