Postponed - RAC bstreetsmart 2020
RAC can confirm that the RAC bstreetsmart events scheduled to take place on the 7th and 8th April at RAC Arena have been postponed.
This decision, whilst incredibly disappointing for everyone involved in the planning and preparation of this event, supports the recent announcement by the Prime Minister to restrict public gatherings of more than 500 people coming into effect on 16 March.
With no immediate end date for this restriction, the health of the expected 12,500 students and teachers over the two day event, is our number one priority.
If you have any further questions please contact the RAC bstreetsmart team at email@example.com
RAC has been hosting bstreetsmart in Western Australia since 2012, and in this time more than 53,000 secondary school students have attended.
RAC bstreetsmart features a crash scene re-enactment attended by the emergency services, just as it would occur at a real crash site. The students also have the opportunity to listen to speakers who have been directly impacted by road trauma and talk with emergency services personnel.

Like RAC bstreetsmart the event program features a crash re-enactment, which has been filmed as a docudrama and showcases the response by real-life emergency services.
