A major accident reconstruction will take place this weekend as the police, ambulance service and fire brigade join forces for a special driver safety event.
Strathearn residents will have a chance to see all three emergency services in action at the road safety day organised by Tayside Police at Crieff Hydro Hotel on Sunday.
The event, which is free and open to all, takes place from 12pm till 4pm – with the accident reconstruction starting at 1.30pm.
Other highlights of the day include the chance for motorists to check their driving reaction times on a brake test machine, assess their knowledge of the highway code and safe alcohol limits as well as receive advice from the police about safe driving.
There will also be the opportunity to learn basic first aid such as CPR, so people know what to do if they come across a road accident.
Several police vehicles, including a police bike plus an ambulance, fire engine, speed camera van and a first response vehicle, will be on show at the event, while a local youth club will be holding a charity car wash to raise funds.
A free-to-enter raffle will also take place with a variety of prizes on offer including five hours of free driving lessons, worth £120, from Crieff Driver Training and a Segway experience for four people donated by the Hydro.
Local community police officer PC Sarah Jane Bell said she hopes as many people as possible will come along to the initiative, which aims to raise awareness of safer driving.
She said: “We will provide people with the opportunity to discuss common motoring offences and basic car maintenance such as ensuring tyres are legal and roadworthy.
“Unfortunately members of the emergency services are all too often called to accidents where people lose their lives or suffer a life changing injury and we would like to do all we can to try to reduce the accident rates.”
