Do you know a young person learning to drive? Perhaps you’re the wonderful (and patient!) experienced driver giving your time and nerves to helping a young L plate driver get some much-needed experience on the road? If that’s the case, then make sure you sign up for ‘Carpool’, an Interactive Road Safety Webinar, free for the Geelong Community, run by the Fit to Drive Foundation. @fittodrivefoundation
“The Fit to Drive Foundation was founded on a community’s passion and commitment to act to keep their young people safe on the road. It is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to reducing road trauma in young people aged 16 to 25.
“Rural road crashes account for over 65% of the Australian road toll and the rate of serious road-related injury among residents in rural areas is nearly twice that of those in major cities.
“‘Carpool’ has been designed for Learner Drivers and their Supervising Drivers to address their concerns in navigating the Graduated Licensing System.
“We are piloting this program in August in recognition of Rural Road Safety Month – a national awareness campaign targeting regional and rural road safety.”
The ‘Carpool’ Webinar is on Wednesday 5th August 2020 from 7PM to 8PM.
