First Stop Branch in Pole Position at ‘Think You Can Drive’ Event
First Stop store, Steve Andrews Tyres was involved in the ‘Think You Can Drive’ event, held last weekend to raise awareness of safer driving on Cornish roads. Steve Andrews Tyres, part of Bridgestone’s First Stop network of tyre stores, teamed up with JBM maintenance to have a significant presence at the event at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge. Together they hosted a large hospitality area which featured Bridgestone’s F1 simulator where young drivers could test their driving skills and pick up advice of road and tyre safety in return for a small charity donation.
Now in its second year, the successful event was organised by the Rotary Club of Truro and supported by Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, Cornwall Fire Service and Cornwall County Council to encourage safer driving on Cornish roads. Local police, fire and ambulance services, along with the team from Steve Andrews Tyres, were on hand demonstrating the importance of road safety to local drivers with accident and skid pan simulators. The event culminated with a landing visit by both the police and air ambulance helicopters.
