A new website for young drivers and riders
Essex County Council’s road safety team has launched a new website for young drivers and motorbike riders.
The website, ‘Essex Roadster’, is aimed at 16–21 year olds and includes features to help young drivers and riders during their first months on the road.
The site has a modern look, will be regularly updated, and has monthly competitions for young people. Advice offered on the site includes tips on taking the driving test, common mistakes people make when buying a car, and the most frequent causes of crashes.
