I have recently watched this program and I hope that this program can be Australia wide..Our kids need to realise that this could happen to them. That they aren't untouchable....They have a responsibility to their parents to come home every night..to keep themselves safe...to just come home!

Hats of to all of those involved with the story that was aired on SUNDAY NIGHT. I have never seen no programme, no nothing, that could be compared to that story. It was full of IMPACT. FOR ALL INVOLVED, ONCE AGIN, WELL DONE and must say, Frank Auld,.... mate as hard as that would have been for you to air yourself, good on ya. You will make one hell of an impact on young kids, as most have grand parents and they would never stop to think, not only the effects it has on there brothers and sisters, mums and dads but also on the grandparents.

I was so impressed and moved by the story on sunday night 20/02...the young people affected by the events and horrific accident which cost their friends their lives, impacted on them to the extent that they are desperate to pass on the message to other young people..I am impressed with Roadwyz and admire and commend all the people involved..at long last, young people may stop, think and take responsibility for their and others actions.

My son died in a car accident not caused through speed or drugs or alcohol, it was due to wheather conditions and his mates car being unroadworthy. I think you are doing a great job and i think the danger of the conditon of the car should be included. I would like to help in some way. i live in Victoria and if I was needed to talk to young people about the consequences, then i would gladley do so. I would love to be invovled in trying to save other kids lives so Mothers don't have to feel this unbearable grief.

Programs like this should be compulsory for any person wanting to obtain a license....

I watched the story on the Sunday program and one of the two featured in that story that was killed in the car accident 17 year old Lana Boyd was my sister in laws daughter, my niece. I believe that the road whyz program should be a compulsory element of schooling like sex education. It is just as important and impacts just as many of our teens. It didnt save my niece but it might save yours.

Congratulations on your good work, I know how hard it is to run a program like this because we have been doing the same thing in Victoria since 1999 under the name Teenagers Road Accident Group -TRAG. We provide the message to years 11 & 12 students of the schools on the Mornington Peninsula. Our message is that Road trauma happens on local roads, to local "kids" and local people have to deal with it. It is graphic and emotional. We have teenagers come and present this message to their peers. These presenters are special people to be able to get up in front of an audience and re-live the worst time in their lives in the hope that the students then have the knowledge that driving comes with a responsibility and decisions have consquences. Teenagers Road Accident Group - TRAG get inquiries from interstate all the time. Now that we know about your group, I can put them on to you for follow up. Please visit www.trag-vic.org and keep up the good work in NSW.

Kellie -Suggest you look at program being conducted by hospitals in Victoria called P.A.R.T.Y.The essence of this program (also being done in WA & Qld) is in taking groups of older scjhool kids into hospitals to view for themselves the trauma experienced by careless behaviour on our roads.
