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.



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.
