As a Police officer for over 40 years and NSW Police Commissioner for 5 years, I have personally seen all too often the devastating impact that road trauma can have at all levels of the community. I have long advocated that the key to making our roads a safer place rests with driver education programs.
We must develop a road safety culture in schools, supporting behaviour change through interactive learning that is age appropriate and importantly promoting social and peer responsibility. Through the RYDA Program, RSE are committed to providing the best possible road safety education for youth.
