Brief and objectives
The Honest Truth is a charity based in the south west of
England, but operating throughout the UK and beyond. Its aim is to encourage
people to commit to a small change, thereby making roads safer and reducing the
number of people killed and injured. The Honest Truth unites the fire service,
police, county and district councils, community safety partnerships and driving
instructors in Devon and Cornwall. For the first time, public sector organisations
work alongside driving instructors to reach learners and parents with safer
driving messages. Instructors have free resources and a seat at board level.
Its vision is clear: to reduce anti-social driving, and the
number of 17 to 24-year-olds killed or seriously injured, by working with
driving instructors to deliver ‘The Honest Truth’ about driving to young
learner drivers and their parents.
