Understanding responsibilities as a young driver

All of Year 10 at Maclean HS participated in the 2-hour live online event bstreetsmart NSW on Tuesday of last week as part of the PDHPE unit Risky Business.

bstreetsmart is the inspiring initiative of the Trauma Service at Westmead Hospital. Westmead’s Trauma Service is constantly reminded through their hands-on work that young people aged between 15–30 are disproportionally represented in road trauma.

bstreetsmart provides students with first-hand experiences and:

  • An understanding of their responsibilities as a driver and as a responsible passenger
  • Information and strategies to avoid serious injuries and death
  • Information on how to reduce risk taking behaviour through greater awareness of the consequences of distracted driving, inattention, speeding, drink and drug driving and driver fatigue.

Well done to all year 10 on their successful participation.
