The video and resources encourage students to consider the impact that their decisions could have on their lives, and the lives of those around them.

If this activity triggers feelings of stress or anxiety, or if a student feels upset by anything shown or discussed, please encourage them to speak to someone they trust. Support can also be found through Road Trauma Support WA.
