Police Scotland is taking its driver engagement north campaign to the Loch Ness-side village of Drumnadrochit later this month.

The innovative road safety initiative for older drivers and their families makes use of an interactive driving simulator to assess and highlight a participant's reactions, hazard awareness and potential vulnerabilities.

The project received funding from Transport Scotland, with support from a number of partners including the NHS, local authority community safety groups, IAM Roadsmart, Age Concern and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.

The sessions will be held at the Craigmonie Centre at Glen Urquhart High School on the following dates:

Monday, June 27, 5pm;

Saturday, July 23, 10 am

Saturday, July 30 at 10 am

Those wishing to attend should email CraigmonieCC@highlifehighland.com or contact the centre directly.

Anyone interested in setting up a Driver Engagement North session elsewhere, or looking for more information about the project, can contact: highlandandislandsdriverengagement@scotland.pnn.police.uk
