Free road safety workshops in Casino and Kyogle

9 March 2020

The community is being invited to attend two separate road safety workshops being held this month in Casino and Kyogle.

Transport for NSW Director North Region Anna Zycki said the first workshop, Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers, is to support parents and supervisors of learner drivers to be effective teachers.

“The workshop includes information about licence conditions for learner and P-plate drivers, tips for using the learner driver log book and the importance of providing constructive feedback,” Ms Zycki said.

“Parents and supervisors play a vital role in helping young drivers gain the experience they need to be safe on the roads.

“This workshop has been developed to help them teach these skills with confidence and ultimately make the journey from L-plater to P-plater safer for all road users.”

Ms Zycki said the second workshop, Road Safety for Older Road Users, is aimed at helping road users aged 65 and over learn about changes to driver licensing rules after the age of 75.

“Attendees at the workshop will learn about misunderstood road rules in NSW, key health changes that can affect road user abilities, safe driving habits, safest car choices, and tips to improve safety when you’re out and about, on or near roads,” she said.

“Information will be provided for all road users, whether they drive, ride, walk, catch public transport, use a mobility scooter, or a combination of these.”
