Virtual turn for drivers

TEENS itching to get their driver’s licence are being taught about road safety in a new online program.

The Steer Right program was developed in response to fears from road safety experts and school principals that teens were missing out on driver education during lockdown.

The not-for-profit Fit to Drive Foundation is behind the initiative along with Victoria Police and the MFB.

“We are really concerned about how some young people are acting out with less traffic on the road,” Fit to Drive CEO Georgia Symmons said.

“They are putting their lives and those of others in danger.”

Werribee Secondary College teacher Roberta Bakotic said, “We are pretty excited that we can continue the same sort of message for youngsters in making good decisions on our roads.”

What followed was the introduction of our first program, the F2D Year 11 Workshop.
