Wild ride for Moss­man stu­dents

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

MOSS­MAN State High school Year 11 stu­dents went on a wild ride as part of a driv­ing aware­ness pro­gram re­cently.

Road Safety Ed­u­ca­tion Limited (RSE) is a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion with a com­mit­ment to the re­duc­tion of trauma on our roads through the de­liv­ery of qual­ity, ev­i­dence based road safety ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams.

The pro­gram tar­gets 16 to 18-year-old stu­dents and in­cludes six in­ter­ac­tive ses­sions cov­er­ing top­ics such as haz­ard per- cep­tion, dis­trac­tion man­age­ment, ve­hi­cle safety, stop­ping dis­tance, fa­tigue and ex­pe­ri­ences of a crash sur­vivor.

Stu­dents Ebony Barnes and Ja­cob Crowe said they were very happy to have the op­por­tu­nity to take part in the ses­sion.

‘‘It is a good pro­gram, it puts in peo­ples heads that they could po­ten­tially be in an ac­ci­dent and makes them aware,’’ Ebony said.

The pro­gram is co­or­di­nated lo­cally through the Moss­man Ro­tary Club.
