'Licence to Kill?' returns to Kent
The theatre and film production ‘Licence to Kill?’ is being re-launched to new audiences of young drivers in Kent.
The award-winning production - aimed at 16 to 18 year-olds - draws on the personal testimonies of emergency service personnel and those that have lost loved ones in collisions on the roads.
Three new performance are planned across the county following positive feedback from productions over the past two years.
Stuart Skilton, head of community fire safety for Kent Fire and Rescue, said: “This is the third year of this production but it has lost none of its impact. Young drivers have to be made aware of their responsibilities on the road and the potentially lethal results of failing to do so.”
