Students in Campbell Town have taken lessons learned in road safety to their peers, and are set to spread them even further with an educational video.
A crash scenario was a culmination of bundled grade 11 and 12 road safety and project organisation courses at Campbell Town District High School, with grant assistance from the Motoring Accident Insurance Board.
Students were educated across a range of road safety issues, from speeding to mobile phone use, and then arranged the scenario to pass on their knowledge to fellow students in grade 10.

“It gave us a chance to connect with them,” said Oakley Eyre, the student who organised the project.
Northern Midlands SES Unit volunteers assisted with the scenario, as did police, fire and ambulance.
The scenario didn’t stop at the crash scene however, with actors playing the vehicles’ drivers then running through the court process back at school with a magistrate and lawyers.
