First driving safety event takes place at Great Lever mosque

The Bolton News: Emergency services staff at the awareness event at Al Rahman Mosque in Great Lever Emergency services staff at the awareness event at Al Rahman Mosque in Great Lever

THE dangers of racing and "anti-social driving" were targeted by police in major crackdown at an event at a mosque in Bolton.

The police, Bolton Council, Bolton Council of Mosques (BCOM) and the fire service are running a series of events to target bad driving after a number of serious crashes in Bolton.

The first took place yesterday in the grounds of Al Rahman Mosque in Randall Street, Great Lever.

Firefighters showed people a demonstration of cutting people out of a car and allowed people to see the effects of driving while under the influence of drugs by using a simulator.

The next event will be held at Masjid-e-noor-ul-islam in Prospect Street, Halliwell.

Drive down Halliwell Road at 1pm on a Friday, its like a car park Where the mosque is, and not one traffic warden or CCTV Smart Car, too busy targeting people at the top end.

How about parking lessons, i.e how not to park on pavements to avoid yellow lines.
