ARSC conference 2018

Due to a gap in coordinated, innovative road safety education tools in Tasmania, RACT RoadSafe was developed and launched in 2017 and piloted in five Tasmanian primary schools in Term 4. The resource is designed for students to better explore road safety independently, in small groups and/or in a classroom. Students have access to videos, games, activities and a comprehensive quiz set which all explore pedestrian safety, passenger safety, safety on wheels and basic street sign knowledge. Importantly, student performance in the quiz component generates background data to identify gaps in road safety knowledge.
