Greater Manchester Police is appealing for people to 'Bin the Blade' with a month-long knife surrender
Crushed Car at Cheshire Show
The victim was just about to turn 21 when he died, police say he did have alcohol in his system. They're hoping the shocking vision will urge people to think about safety when getting behind the wheel.
Cheshire's Assistant Chief Constable Ruth Purdie said "We are inviting people to talk to Police Officers about the possible consequences of even a momentary lapse of concentration or a small misjudgement. In particular we hope that young people and their parents will talk to us. We believe the sight of the car and learning what happened to that young man will underline the message in a way that nothing else could.
Road death is the biggest killer of people aged between 16 and 25 in Britain. Young drivers who have passed the test within the previous two years are far more likely to be involved in a collision than other people. It is largely down to inexperience and sometimes to not taking safe driving quite as seriously as necessary.
Cheshire is a largely rural county says Road Safety Officer Dave Murray, a lot of people drive considerable distances as part of their every-day lives. That means getting it right is very important. Good driving is largely about attitude and behaviour and we can do something about that. The parents of the young man who died in this car have very bravely provided it for use to get the right messages across. We believe it will be very effective. It will play a part in saving some other young lives.
40 people arrested during 59 searches across Greater Manchester as part of an operation against organised drug gangs.
