Driver First Assist (DFA) has recently completed a day of unique road safety training in conjunction with Devon County Council. With over five lives lost every day on UK roads, Devon County Council was keen to bolster its road safety strategy with help from DFA, an initiative which trains professional drivers to deal with road traffic collisions (RTCs) in a bid to save lives.
Nigel Flower, Safer Travel Strategic Officer, organised the course on behalf of Devon County Council: “We were really keen to learn more about the structure of the course. DFA’s aim is to try and reduce the number of people killed in RTCs which fits in with our road safety strategy,” Nigel Flower explains.
“Driver First Assist is a fantastic initiative which really could make the vital difference to saving lives on our roads. I am very pleased we took part, and I am now keen to establish local trainers to roll the course out across Devon,” said Nigel Flower.
