About the Hazard Express – The Virtual Insanity experience

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service leads the way for road safety, utilising emerging technology to engage, entertain and educate not only young drivers, but also experienced drivers. Our new, first of a kind road safety vehicle called the “Hazard Express” – The Virtual Insanity Experience, is a world first in the drive to reduce the number of Killed and Serious Injuries on the UK’s roads.


The occupants will experience the horrors of a road traffic collision, in a controlled environment, and the consequences associated with driving too fast and irresponsibly. After experiencing the VF4 package, drivers will have a better understanding of the very real risks associated with driving or travelling in a vehicle that is being driven by a person who takes unnecessary risks. To create the Hazard Express distinctive styling we took an unassuming red IVECO van and created a rusty urban monster – guaranteed to grab the attention of our target audience!
