'Clunk Click' face praises speed awareness course
The woman whose scarred face was used in Jimmy Savile’s 1970s ‘Clunk Click’ seat belt campaign has praised speed awareness courses, after being caught speeding herself.
Barbara Moore (pictured) received 100 stitches to her face after a crash in which she was a passenger. Now a 54 year-old mother of four, she has just completed a speed awareness course.
Barbara said: “I do feel guilt in the light of my experience that I broke the speed limit but the course was brilliant. Everyone would benefit from this. It has changed forever how I drive. I drive differently because of it and I am now much more aware when I am on the road.
“It makes you realise just how important the speed limits are and the impact on someone if they walked out in front of your car."
