Speedblitz hits Lismore

Lismore High schools Daniel Mitchell lets fly during the Speedblitz bowling test at Lismore High last Friday as New South Wales opening batsman Ed Cowan keeps an eye on the young speedster.

There have been 13 deaths on Lismore roads in the last five years and speeding has been a factor in most of them.

NSW cricketers Ed Cowan, Dan Smith and Grant Lambert visited Lismores high school students last week to highlight the dangers of speeding behind the wheel.

The trio was visiting schools as part of the Speedblitz Blues On the Road program, where State cricketers work with the RTA and NSW Police to encourage safer driving practices.

The cricketers visited Kadina, Richmond River and Lismore High to test students bowling speeds and educate them about the dangers of speeding.
