I'm feeling Stronger.
I'm looking for tools to campaign for road safety and opportunities to educate others about the effect of reckless driving.
I'm here because I work for the police or emergency services, I am involved in road safety education, and campaigning against the high road tolls.
I've been a member since 13 Feb 2010

My story

I am a volunteer with the State Emergency Service. I first got involved back in 93, I did 7 yrs with Road Crash Rescue before I had to take some time out. Now I have been in it for 6 years so I have 13 yrs experience up my sleeve, I have dealt with it all from those lightly injured to the fatalities.

I have started to help campaign against the high road tolls with my local member of parliment. I am trying to get the Dept of Education, the RTA, NRMA, and the Minister for Transport as well as the crash labs on board as well. I would like to see all schools participate in a Driver Education Programme so we can teach everyone about road safety, speeding, drink driving and fatigue.

I would like to see them attend crash labs so they can see what happens to a car at different speeds.

I also lost a good mate and his son in a double fatality on the 10/01/10. I can deal with Road Crash Rescue but not losing a mate in one.

So everyone please take it easy when behind the wheel
