Is your school looking to teach students how to be safe on the roads? RAC offers an interactive education program designed to develop good safety values among the next generation of drivers.

On the Roads Program

The On the Roads program is a free road safety education program suited to Year 10 to 12 students. The program is designed to help keep students safe on the roads by influencing risk reduction, increasing resilience and encouraging responsible behaviour.

The On the Roads program consists of several interactive road safety workshops (each 45-60 minutes in length), a youth road trauma awareness event (RAC bstreetsmart) as well as other supporting resources.

RAC Project Road Smart

RAC Project Road Smart focuses on driver and passenger behaviour and highlights the far-reaching effects of road crashes. Like the RAC bstreetsmart event held annually at RAC Arena in Perth, this program will feature a crash re-enactment, which has been filmed as a docudrama and showcases the response by real-life emergency services. Students will also hear from guest speakers who have been directly affected by road trauma. These events are run by RAC with the support of the WA Police Force, Department of Fire and Emergency Services and St John Ambulance.
