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.



Road Safety

There are a number of factors that have contributed to reducing the number of people seriously injured or killed as a result of a crash.

  • The first way is educating drivers about road safety. Most attention has been on drivers because research shows that driver behaviour is the primary cause of a crash – such as not wearing a seatbelt, driving too fast for the conditions (weather and road surface), driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs; driver fatigue; distracted by  mobile phone, passengers, food, smoking etc.
  • The second way is better design of vehicles – the designs are to protect the driver and other road users when a crash occurs.
  • The third factor is road improvements to prevent crashes happening and reducing the impact when they do – such as improved line marking, guard rails, protective barriers around poles.
  • The fourth is the improvements in medicine, both in emergency/trauma care and in rehabilitation; as well as having highly skilled and well equipped rescue teams in the Fire Brigade and Ambulance Service.
