Connecting our roads: Our commitment to community

This year, our Community Coordinators journeyed over 11,600km, connecting with more than 4440 Tasmanians.

Our team went the extra mile, quite literally, to engage with students and senior groups in less-travelled regions. From Smithton to Beaconsfield, our team has been there to help educate our community on safer roads.

As advocates of early learning in road safety concepts, Book Week offered an opportunity to infuse a little magic into our community initiatives. Our infants’ road safety storybook program, YIPPEE!, took centre stage at Stepping Stones Childcare, where Southern Community Coordinator Hayley made her TV debut on the local news.

We also established a new relationship with the Launceston Women’s Friendship Group when our Northern Community Coordinator, Sarah, was invited as a guest speaker. “It was a real highlight to contribute to the WFG’s vision of positively impacting the lives of more than two million women throughout Australia by 2023,” she says.

To instill safer driving habits, we visited students at Launceston Big Picture School, with support from one of our dedicated driver trainers, Craig Hopkins. Craig’s firsthand experiences as a police officer, including managing the aftermath of serious car crashes, left a lasting impression on the students. We’re grateful for our driver training team’s dedication to supporting our Tasmanian community.

Community Education

We offer a range of free, age-appropriate education programs that are designed to introduce basic road rule concepts, develop lifesaving skills and to help clarify commonly misunderstood road rules in Tasmania.
