Young people are over-represented in injury statistics compared with other age groups. Unintentional injury is the biggest single cause of death for young people and is most likely to happen while they are travelling, particularly by road. SafeStart is being designed as an innovative in-school program that provides students with a greater opportunity to understand risk and its broader implications. While the focus will be on safe travel there will be broader application for other risk behaviours.
