U-Turn the Wheel

As part of the school’s Crossroads program, all of Year 11 participated in the program “U-Turn the Wheel” on Friday. This is a program, which is run by our local Rotary Club, is aimed at young people and road safety. It specifically addresses the attitudes and awareness of driver related issues such as speed, fatigue, alcohol, drugs and the wearing of seat belts; each which have been identified as major contributors to road casualties among our young drivers.This program also addresses the issues of risk taking behaviour, peer pressure and responsible decision making in the areas of insurance and purchasing of a vehicle.

Police from the accident investigation team and  highway patrol together with ambulance officers enlightened our students about keeping safe and abiding by the road rules.

The NRMA also showed them what to look for in a car to avoid buying a ‘lemon’ or a car which has a dodgy history or previous owner. Choosing the safest you can afford is also important and the NRMA provided students with information on which used cars are the safest to buy and where to go to get the information they need.  Checking the vehicles compliance plates and ensuring they match the registration papers protects them from fraud.

Students were then shown the basic car maintenance such as checking oil and coolants levels as well as lights and tyres. These four areas are basic to road safety and are things that all drivers must check on a regular basis. No only do they keep the car running safely, but have the potential to save the owner lots money in repairs.

Thank you to Mrs Noble who organised this event.
