Since joining the Fit to Drive Board in 2018 Tania has applauds the commitment the organisation generates. It is clear that the Fit to Drive’s programs, based as they are on research into how attitudes and behaviours can change, are those that should be available to every young person and in fact anyone in the early stages of driving, across the State. 

Tania’s focus with Fit to Drive is to assist with raising program awareness and public profile in the road safety space, sharing the important outcomes we achieve in preventing road deaths and injury in the highly vulnerable teenager and young adult group.
