2016 was another huge year for ROADwhyz, we made 31 presentations including High schools, TAFE campuses and Apprentice groups. We also ventured out on a road trip where we kicked off at Brisbane Waters Secondary College on the Central Coast. BW hosted several other local schools from that area, the team did two presentations in the one day and then headed off to Sydney to present to another group of 8 schools in total from surrounding Sydney areas. The road trip was a huge success and suggeste... Read Full Post »

A Powerfull Poem - Sums up Road Trauma riple effect

Posted by ROADwhyz on August 19, 2015 at 11:35 PM Comments comments (0)

A powerful poem sgared by a retired Seargent of teh NSW Police Force

ALONG THE ROAD.

Along the road you’ll see them, reminders of the loss,

Some flowers tied up to a tree and always there’s a cross,

You’ll see them on a highway or on a country lane,

I’ve seen them on some city streets, a souvenir of pain.


They’ll mostly be around a bend or where the road goes straight,

The reason for them being there is...

Road Safety Education - Research report findings

Posted by ROADwhyz on May 28, 2014 at 11:55 PM Comments comments (0)

The Keys2Drive program is a program similar to ROADwhyz and one in which we have been guest speakers on several occasions. A recent evaluation of the program has shown a nearly 50% reduction in crashes for those learners who do the K2D lesson. For details please see https://www.keys2drive.com.au/PDF/Keys2Drive_Report_FINAL_2013.pdf.

It is hard to find research that proves education improves road safety outcomes. So to find one that has proven to be effective is special.

Media campaigns and Motor Vehicles

Posted by ROADwhyz on March 25, 2014 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)

 BMW have just started running ads aimed at car buyers.The ads actually include a standing BMW car revving it’s engine as racing cars do – then it races of through the streets with tyres screeching. I rest my case!

DO YOU THINK THAT this irresponsible ‘new’ theme, is detrimental to road safety initiatives?

What can we do about the advertising industry?
