2007 - 2022


That's a wrap for 2022. The ROADwhyz team had a bit to deal with this year including the dreaded COVID 19 lockdowns and cancellations. We managed to present to 15 high schools throughout Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. We also held two free community events, one in Newcastle where 60 people attended and one in Maitland where 50 people attended, both held as part of Rural road safety month. We also managed a couple of trade colleges in Maitland. All up The ROADwhyz team presented to approximately 3000 current and potential young drivers as well as a few full licenced drivers. On a personal note I was proud to receive the OAM for my work with road safety and community but it would not be possible without the passionate support of all the first responder's who volunteer their time to present a powerful message about 'Choice & Consequence'. This is what makes ROADwhyz what it is. We look forward to returning to our school in 2023.

October 2022 saw ROADwhyz co-founder Michelle Davis presented with the Order of Australia medal for service to road safety, and to the community. " I feel very honoured to have a wonderful team of first responders who are equally passionate about ensuring we educate young drivers about the consequences of poor choices within a motor vehicle". Michelle is also co-founder of the H.O.P.E Support group which supports parents who have lost children.

2017 Wrap up

Posted by ROADwhyz on December 13, 2017 at 10:35 PM
2017 was another big year for ROADwhyz as we celebrated 10 years of community work, presenting to Students, apprentice groups, community groups and various other road safety organisation, a new intro video was made to commemorate this mile stone. We made 27 presentation this year, including a first for the team in our local area, presenting at the Newcastle Town Hall where 8 schools came from all over the Newcastle area. This method worked perfectly, we will be presenting in the same format on the 23rd of March 2018 and so far have 7 schools booked in. Our Young Driver Merit award numbers of students presented was down this year in part due to the difficulty teachers have of organising students to be put forward, we will continue to tweak this so that more students can have this opportunity. Thanks again to the help of Motoron Driving School and Drive5 Learner driver training for helping us out with presentations and the lessons as part of the Driver merit award. Thanks to both Ron and Peter respectively for their ongoing support and commitment to our program. Two community events will happen in 2018 just as they did for 2017, one at end of June just before school hols and one in Dec , dates will be posted on the calendar. We were joined by a few extra helpers this year, Kylie our Ambo from Kurri and Mark the Ambo from Cessnock. Two extra Highway Patrol Alison and Jason who now coordinate schools closer to the bay. Thank you to you guys for seeing the value in what we do. Your help is very much appreciated For me (Michelle, co founder & coordinator) I cant thank the team enough, not only are we spreading the word about road safety, we are I am sure saving lives with education and for me on a personal note you enable me to continue on the program set up 10 years ago by Simon and Dave which also allows me a legacy for my boys, for that I thank you all�?� I don�??t know how long we will keep going but while ever we have such a passionate team of individuals I see no end in site �???
