Rotary encourages drivers to be safer on the roads
ABOUT 40 young drivers from Proserpine State High School and Bowen State High School learned how to be more vigilant on the road by attending the Rotary Advanced Driver Education course at the Whitsunday Raceway.
The Rotary Club of Airlie Beach has hosted the program for the past nine years in an attempt to encourage young drivers to be safe road users.
The three one-day courses were focused on teaching theory work about safely operating a vehicle as well as practical skills such as ha- zard perception, braking systems and emergency stoping.
Rotary Club of Airlie Beach president Roger Boast said if the course could save one person’s life even in 10 years, it would be worth it.
ADVANCED DRIVING: Whitsunday youth Joe Borellini, Peter Little, Danielle Drabsch, Kieran Anderson, Hannah Larkin, Tom Collingwood with John Fraser Fleet senior instructor Bruce Horey, Lachlan Brown, Thomas Ruddell and Rotary Club of Airlie Beach president Roger Boast learned valuable driving skills at the Whitsunday Raceway on Tuesday.
