The ROADWHYZ – ‘Choice and Consequence’ program is a joint initiative of the Lower Hunter Police, ambulance officers from the NSW Ambulance Service and parents within the community. The program has been developed to assist drivers, in particular young drivers from the age of 17 – 25.
The program is facilitated by an ex TAFE teacher / lecturer (Michelle Davis) with over 9 years experience in teaching and presenting to students aged from 16 years upward. The core information is delivered by the highway patrol officers, ambulance paramedics, and several rescue service volunteers, who collectively have over 20 years experience in their relevant fields .
It is anticipated that the students will be able to take information from the experts and apply it to their driving experiences, helping them to see they are in charge of the choices they make while driving and as such can have control of the consequences.
