RAA believes all road users, irrespective of age or mode of transport, should have an up-to-date knowledge of traffic law and have the attitudes and skills to be safe when using the transport system.

In schools, road safety curriculum needs to be provided on a regular basis to reinforce existing concepts and introduce new skills as children develop.

Education programs that focus on vulnerable road users – including pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, school children and people with disabilities, regional community members and older people – should also be developed to encourage all road users to share the road safely.

That’s why our Community Education team visits hundreds of students every year to promote the importance of road safety, and connects with hundreds of older people through our Years Ahead program to help them brush up on their skills and knowledge.
