Students urged to bstreetsmart on the roads

27 Aug 2015

Nearly 22,000 high school students got a first-hand look at the confronting side of dangerous road behaviour at this year’s bstreetsmart youth road safety program.

The program, which was founded at Westmead Hospital, marked its 10th anniversary at Sydney’s Allphones Arena from August 25 to 27.

Westmead Hospital general manager Andrew Newton addressed the students, urging them to drive safely and discuss their organ donation wishes with their family.

The students also got the chance to watch simulations, highlighting the dangers of driver distractions, and listen to stories from young car crash survivors.

The event will be streamed live on August 26, allowing more than 1500 schools across the nation to be involved.
