Driving lessons planned for Afghanistan veterans Soldiers may have become used to driving in a manner that is unsuitable for Scottish roads heraldscotland staff 0 comments Published on 8 Dec 2009 Scottish soldiers returning home from Afghanistan will be given road-safety training to ensure they adapt to the âtheatre of lifeâ after becoming used to the âtheatre of warâ. Black Watch soldiers, who are in Helmand, Afghanistan, will be given the training by Northern Constabulary officers. The Army said it wants to provide âafter-careâ to troops returning from duty. The driving courses will focus on the dangers of drink-driving. Many of the troops are young and statistically the most likely to be involved in a car accident. And the returning soldiers will be used to driving in a âlawless stateâ with few roads and may struggle to adapt to driving at home, a force spokesman said. In July this year, 21-year-old Scott Bain, of the The Highlanders, 4th Battalion Royal Regiment of Scotland, was killed in a crash while on leave from Germany.
