I attended the bStreetsmart event today along with my school, MET Oatlands.

I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome job you did. The day was excellent. Crash scene was very realistic and survivors stories very stirring.

Thanks for organising this great event! It was a job very well done.

 



WOW! WOW! WOW!

 

Thank you for having us attend the BSTREET SMART program today. I can't put into words how powerful all the demonstrations and speakers were.

This is so well put together and I am so pleased 100 of our students were able to attend.

 

Thank you so much!

 

Excellent! and so important.

 



Thank you for organising such a wonderful and powerful event.

Welcome to the bstreetsmart website, previously known as The Youth and Road Trauma Forum.  This successful forum is going into its 13th year is Australia’s largest educational event on road safety with over 161,000 year 10, 11 and 12 students having participated from 405 schools.

bstreeetsmart is the inspiring initiative of the Trauma Service at Westmead  Hospital.  Westmead’s Trauma Service is constantly reminded through their hands on work that young people aged  between 17 - 25 are disproportionally represented in road trauma.  As a result they have a strong commitment to Road Safety Education.

 

The purpose of bstreetsmart is to reduce the fatality and injury rates of young people by promoting safe behaviour as drivers, riders and passengers.

 

bstreetsmart provides students with first hand experiences and:

  An understanding of their responsibilities as a driver and as a responsible  passenger

Information and strategies to avoid serious injuries and death

Information on how to reduce risk taking behaviour through greater awareness of the consequences of distracted driving, inattention, speeding, drink and  drug driving and driver fatigue.

 

This successful initiative receives support from the NSW government and our generous partners to ensure bstreetsmart can continue to be offered  to all schools, as they recognise the important role it plays in the community.
