Teen road safety
Transport for London has a new campaign for teen road safety 2011 - 'Don't Let Your Friendship Die on The Road'
Even though road safety awareness is on the rise, stay aware and pay attention. Don't get distracted by your phone. Nearly everyday a teenager is killed or seriously injured on the roads. So look out for your mates and don't let your friendship die on the road
Following the success of last year's support from Tinie Tempah and Eliza Doolittle, new ambassadors include BBC TV's Being Human stars Lenora Crichlow and Russell Tovey, who join top artists Wretch 32, Yasmin and Dels have join the new campaign, see below:
Wretch 32 said: "I decided to get involved because life is precious and something that shouldn't be taken for granted. If people take on board the safety advice then lives will be saved."
