“It was Friday 9th August and the Fire Brigade came in to Clee Youth Centre, to the Summer Arts College and they brought the iCar, with them. It is a simulator, which is inside the car and when you sit in there, there is a video that is being played to you. It shows you five people in the car and the male driver has recently passed his test and he is driving to the sound of the music, he is being asked to speed up by his mates. The male driver listens to what his female and two males friends say and he speeds up, but the other female tells him to slow down and stick to the speed limit as he was driving too fast, but he didn’t listen to her and he carried on speeding up.
Whilst you’re sat in the iCar you can feel all the bumps that the driver in the video is hitting, this made it feel really realistic. From this experience of being in the iCar, I know that from this day forward that I would get a car but I know I wouldn’t show off in front of my friends or have them in the car whilst I was doing so. If I was in a car with one of my friends or one of their friends and I thought they were driving dangerously, then I would say that I was going to be sick. I would hope that they would stop, otherwise they would have sick in the car!!” by Zara
