Wisbech student wins road safety awareness campaign
Wisbech students have been helping to raise awareness about the dangers of getting behind the wheel after taking drugs.
Cambridgeshire County Council Road Safety Officers set students at the College of West Anglia’s Wisbech campus a brief to help tackle the problem.
The winning concept was designed by Jake Howlett, who has since started graphic design at Norwich University of the Arts.
His series of posters with the slogan “Drugs can colour your senses” has now been given approval from the Department for Transport to use for a local campaign next February. This will aim to promote awareness of the dangers of driving whilst under the influence of drugs. Jake said: “I am really happy that my work was chosen and will be used to promote this important message.”
