Ever heard of the Fatal Four? They are the most common causes of death in road traffic collisions: drink/drug driving, speeding, not wearing a seatbelt and using a mobile phone at the wheel.
Even if you don't drive, you still have a voice when it comes to your own safety. Young people are being encouraged to follow a Facebook campaign which will enable them to access a whole range of advice and suggestions on alternative ways of influencing other people's behaviour should they not have the confidence to speak up.
