Young drivers visiting Maidstone’s Lockmeadow last night (Wednesday 10th June 2015) were given advice about the dangers of using a mobile phone at the wheel, as Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) firefighters ask young people across the county ‘Are you phone safe when you drive?’

Throughout June, KFRS is encouraging young people to enter an online competition to win an iPad mini and a VIP tour for up to 11 people of the brand new KFRS Road Safety Experience which opens to the public in April 2016. All they have to do to win is to come up with a name for the road safety car.

Maidstone’s firefighters will be in Jubilee Square on Friday 12June 2015 from 9.30am-11am hoping to convince more young drivers to be phone safe and to explain about the dangers of mobile phone distraction.
