Have you heard about the bstreetsmart annual event?

Written by Michelle Lowden


bstreetsmart NSW, an initiative of the Trauma Service at Westmead Hospital, is an event held at the Qudos Bank Arena, which inspires thousands of high school students annually. This will be the 15th year that bstreetsmart has been able to impact young and future drivers of NSW. 

Westmead's Trauma Service is strongly committed to road safety education, as they are continuously reminded that people aged 15-30 are disproportionately represented in road trauma. 

bstreetsmart exists to reduce the fatality and injury rates of young people, through promoting safe driving behaviour to drivers, riders and passengers.

Each year the number of attendees grows significantly, which means more students and teachers are having the opportunity to be educated around road safety.

Onroad Driving School is proud to say that we have been able to volunteer a team at the Qudos Bank Arena both last year and this year. We feel extremely honoured to play a role in educating the young drivers of NSW. Some of the schools who attend are Hornsby Girls High School, Normanhurst Boys' High School, Baulkham Hills High School and Knox Grammar School. We also do School Presentations on driver safety, so come at chat to one of our friendly team members if you would like to organise for us to come to your school. 

We place particular emphasis on drink driving and driving with mobile phones, as we have seen these to be the two biggest causes of fatal accidents among young drivers. 

At our expo, we simulate drink driving through the Beer Goggle Challenge. This challenge gives you the feeling of being drunk, whilst having to manoeuvre through a course with obstacles. 

We also have other fun and exciting things happening so come visit us!!! There are great prizes to be won when you participate in the activities. So bring your friends and learn how to be a safer driver, whilst also having a whole lot of fun! 

 

Some of the great prizes available. See you at bstreetsmart!
