BEHIND THE WHEEL AGAIN!

On Monday 6th May 2019 the Stafford Advanced Motorists are holding a Driving Day at Seighford Airfield with a difference – the Drivers are Registered Blind people!

The day provides a rare opportunity for those people who are Registered Blind or partially sighted to get behind the wheel of a production car and actually drive it. An Observer from Stafford Advanced Motorists provides a demonstration ride round the carefully planned circuit to give the Blind Driver a “feel” for the course before moving over to the passenger seat.

The Blind Driver then takes control of the vehicle and follows the instructions of the Observer. Family members and friends join in the fun and often travel round the circuit in the back seats of the vehicle. Additionally, people can have an opportunity or being driven round the circuit in a vintage car.

Each Driver is given a Certificate of Achievement at the end of the run.

This started in 2003 and the event this year is again supported by Stafford Hyundai, Bristol Street Motors, and Staffordshire County Council Fleetcare who have all provided automatic cars and by DriveMe.Net who are providing all the Circuit facilities.

                                                                                   

Les McDowell, Chairman of the Stafford Group of Advanced Motorists, commented: -

“We really appreciate all the help and support of our sponsors  in bringing together all the necessary elements in making this fun event happen. It gives all of us involved real satisfaction to see how much this type of event is enjoyed by those who are unable to drive.”
