Trying to make the right impact to save young lives on Norfolk's roads.

Students are being shown the real-life consequences of losing control behind the wheel.

The Impact campaign opens with a Scarning motorist talking about how he was seriously hurt in a bad crash.

Thomas Semmons was caught in bad weather on the B1145 when his car crashed.

He speaks out about how it hasn't just affected him but his loved ones as well.

The campaign from the Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner is supported by Norfolk Constabulary, Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service and the East of England Ambulance Service, with students also given a 'crashed car' demonstration.

PCC Lorne Green said:

"I take very seriously the pledge I have made to do all I can to prevent young people from being seriously injured or killed on our roads, and I am delighted that my #Impact initiative is back on the road again.

The fact we have already managed to reach so many young people across Norfolk is simply fantastic, however it is essential the #Impact team continues to educate young people about the dangers of the fatal four, whether it be drink and drug driving, not wearing a seatbelt, using a mobile phone behind the wheel or excess speeding."
