RSE – Giving young people the key to a safer future
Getting behind the wheel of a car as a young driver or being a passenger with a novice driver is said to be among the most dangerous things that a person will do in their entire life. Youth road trauma statistics are staggering but the enormity of the loss is often only realised when it hits close to home, impacting family, friends and a school community. Road Safety Education Limited (RSE) is a not-for-profit organisation that delivers highly effective, evidence-based road safety education programs which adhere to recognised “best practice” guidelines to reduce the incidence of youth road trauma in our communities.
RSE, in association with Rotary Clubs in Australia and New Zealand – our community partner – and with the support of our sponsors, will continue to provide our core road safety education initiative, the RYDA Program, to young people across Australia and New Zealand. The award winning RYDA Program targets 16-18 year old high school students at a stage in their lives where they are starting to drive or ride in vehicles driven by their friends. To date there have been over 400,000 RYDA “graduates” with more than 50,000 students now attending RYDA each year.
The Road Safety Education Foundation has been established to help sustain the aims of Road Safety Education Limited.
