Educating our future drivers

We’re all too familiar with traffic accidents involving young people. Here at AXA, we believe in supporting our communities.

With the AXA Roadsafe Roadshow we’ve been educating Ireland’s future drivers on the dangers of driving and the importance of road safety. Running since 2009, we’ve created an award-winning experience that aims to inspire our future drivers to be safer on the road.

How does it work?

How does it work?

The AXA Roadsafe Roadshow mixes theatre, video and first-hand accounts from Gardaí and emergency services to highlight the dangers of driving. Family members of victims to road accidents also share their stories.

Each school year, we work with local County Councils to bring this valuable and unique experience to local communities around Ireland to help support and protect our future drivers across the country.

The Power of Storytelling

The Power of Storytelling

  • Make it feel real

    We created an environment that the students feel comfortable in and can relate to. They walk into a club atmosphere with a live DJ. The mood changes when an actor playing Sean, an inexperienced young driver, has a tragic car accident. Our actors present a scene that has happened all too often.

  • Experienced first responders

    Emergency Services at the scene tell Sean’s story. They share their own experiences and emotions when helping the injured and families of the deceased.

  • Know You Can

    The presentation will shock and educate our young people who will have a newfound responsibility to respect the roads.

    Most importantly, they will come away knowing that they can help others by spreading the message of road safety.
