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.

ROADwhyz Tilligerry Community event

Posted by ROADwhyz on September 28, 2019 at 8:40 PM
A simulated road accident will be the centrepiece of a free community event that aims to expose young drivers to the realities of emergency scenes. The free Tilligerry Peninsula community event will take place at Mallabula sporting complex on Saturday, September 28, from 10am to 2pm. Under the banner of 'bringing prevention and response together, the day will feature road safety demonstrations mixed with a creative arts project, emergency vehicle display, entertainment, food and interactive activities. A re-enactment of a car crash scene will allow Police to take control of the accident, Ambulance to attend to the casualties, Port Stephens SES Rescue Unit to demonstrate extrication of the casualties and Rural Fire Service to provide fire safety measures at the crash site. SES spokesperson Bruce Gendre said that for the first time the hugely popular ROADwhyz Choices and Consequences program - normally delivered in high schools for years 11 and 12 - would be delivered as a community event. "The program's founder Michelle Davies [who lost two sons in a car accident 12 years ago] recognises that the information would be of benefit to the wider community," Mr Gendre said. "This event will offer entertainment and activities as well as an opportunity for young drivers to talk to emergency services in a friendly and informal environment. "We have all seen a road crash or been impacted by a road crash whether it be by delays, road closures or by the injury or loss of a loved one, friend or just someone that you know." A road crash not only affects the people in the vehicle. "The impact ripples outward starting with the bystanders and the first people to get to the crash site. Then there are the emergency services who attend. Social Media plays a big role in extending the impact as it spreads the information to a wide audience very quickly," Mr Gendre said.
