Our school was fortunate enough to view the bstreetsmart road safety
event at Allphones arena this week. I would like to sincerely thank the
volunteers, organisers and sponsors of this event for an outstanding
presentation. The big message that our students received from this forum
is the power of the passengers in influencing the driver to slow down
and behave responsibly. It pulls no punches and it was a powerful
experience and I encourage all principals to explore sending students
from their school to next years event. Thanks once again to all
involved.
 



I will remember the outcomes of stupid choices.



Extremely powerful and emotion provoking. I think every teenager needs to witness something like that.

Welcome to the bstreetsmart website, previously known as The Youth and Road Trauma Forum.  This successful forum is going into its 11th year is Australia’s largest educational event on road safety with over 122,000 year 10, 11 and 12 students having participated.

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 15 – 30 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.
