2007 - 2022
15 YEARS OF LIFE SAVING PRESENTATIONS
That's a wrap for 2022. The ROADwhyz team had a bit to deal with this year including the dreaded COVID 19 lockdowns and cancellations. We managed to present to 15 high schools throughout Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. We also held two free community events, one in Newcastle where 60 people attended and one in Maitland where 50 people attended, both held as part of Rural road safety month. We also managed a couple of trade colleges in Maitland. All up The ROADwhyz team presented to approximately 3000 current and potential young drivers as well as a few full licenced drivers. On a personal note I was proud to receive the OAM for my work with road safety and community but it would not be possible without the passionate support of all the first responder's who volunteer their time to present a powerful message about 'Choice & Consequence'. This is what makes ROADwhyz what it is. We look forward to returning to our school in 2023.

October 2022 saw ROADwhyz co-founder Michelle Davis presented with the Order of Australia medal for service to road safety, and to the community. " I feel very honoured to have a wonderful team of first responders who are equally passionate about ensuring we educate young drivers about the consequences of poor choices within a motor vehicle". Michelle is also co-founder of the H.O.P.E Support group which supports parents who have lost children.
