An Aberdeen man who lost a leg after a horror smash on a rural road has warned young drivers not to make the same mistakes he did.
Dave Taylor, 28, was driving on the B997 Aberdeen to Newmachar road when he crashed into another car.
The accident on August 16, 2011, left three people, including Dave, with serious injuries.
Dave, who works at a veterinary surgery, spoke out as thousands of school pupils were gearing up to take part in Safe Drive Stay Alive, held to educate young people in the North-east about road safety.
Dave took part in the show in 2012 and 2013. Since then his leg, which was badly broken in the smash, has been amputated and he now has a prosthetic limb.
The Bridge of Don man was studying music at college at the time of the crash and working part time in Tesco.
He was 23 and was taking his new Honda Integra Type R for a drive with a friend.
Dave admits he drove dangerously round the bends at more than 60mph and he lost control before crashing into another car.
