THE Rotary Club of Curtin and Bentley have partnered with Waterford’s Clontarf Aboriginal College and New Town Toyota to deliver a road safety program aimed at reducing death and injury amongst young people.
On November 16 students studying the Keys for Life program will have a chance to listen to road safety experts, driving instructors, police and survivors of road crashes in a bid learn better driving practices.
The event will complement six education sessions, which will teach students the impact of differing speeds, reaction, braking and stopping times using real life demonstrations.
Spokesman Peter Fry said the event would be held at the Perth Football Club.
“The program targets 16 to 17- year-olds who are at a stage of their lives where they start to drive or ride in a vehicle driven by their peers,” Mr Fry said.
