A Stevenage fire crew has teamed up with car body and paint students at North Herts College to launch this year’s Driving Home for Christmas road safety campaign.
The students have worked for two months to create a safety message vehicle that has been displayed outside Stevenage Fire Station.
This year's safety theme is vulnerable road users, so the students have incorporated safety messages for motorcycles, cyclists, and pedestrians.
Julie Springett, Herts Fire and Rescue Service's road safety co-ordinator for Stevenage and North Herts, said: "Working with the students on road safety has created a strong partnership and enables us to not only get messages to the wider public but it highlights it to the students as well.
"They have worked so hard and we are really impressed with the finished vehicle."
Motor vehicle tech tutor Gemma Hughes added: "This is a great project for us to get involved in for the community, we really enjoyed working with the fire service."
