Classic car show launched for teenagers
4:07pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
A DRIVING school has launched a classic car show to teach teenagers about road safety.
Firefighter Karl Rushen set up Streelife in north Essex with business partner Gary Lipman two years ago after seeing the damage of car crashes.
They teach youngsters safer driving once a month.
The pair have organised the show at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
As well as showing classic bikes and cars they will be hoping to get the message across to teenagers about driving safely.
Mr Rushen, 34, of Tollesbury, said: “I run the driving school but I am also a retained firefighter at Tollesbury and see the aftermath from road crashes.
“We are really trying to teach the kids before they get to 17."
As well as cars and bikes on show at the event there will also be choppers, scooters, music and hot food.
Those between the ages of 14 and 17 can also have a go at a free driving lesson on the day.
The event will raise money for the Essex Air Ambulance.
It is taking place on Sunday, September 15 from 10.30am to 3pm.
Entry is £3 and under 14s go free.
