Safe driving goals THE footballers taking part will initially complete a driver risk assessment to determine their risk exposure rating.
The assessment will be followed by a two-hour interactive workshop looking at key driving issues such as speed awareness, driver fatigue, the impact of alcohol and drugs, mobile phone usage and observation and manoeuvring.
