Some 2844 youthful everyone was wiped out or hurt in road crashes on Welsh roads in 2002. The brand new initiative, based on the Welsh Set up, tries to educate individuals youthful motorists and produce that figure lower.
The Daewoo Youthful Driver Challenge, organised through the Road Safety Council of Wales (ROSCOW), is free of charge to go in for 17-24 year-olds resident or perhaps in full-time education in Wales.
