Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA)

Wednesday, 31 Oct 2018

Our club has been a major supporter of RYDA. On six out of the nine days, the Day Manager has come from our club. Josh and Karen De Groot have managed the catering, which includes making the sandwiches.
Max Watkins and Dale Luck have provided extra back-up and other club members have acted as guides on several of the days.

RYDA is a series of practical and powerful workshops that aim to change the way young people think about road safety.  As part of an interactive one-day experience, students experience high-speed braking, devise travel strategies that will work for them in the real world and get tips from road safety experts on how to protect themselves, their friends and family.  Perhaps the most impactful moments come from the personal stories of loss and survival.  In one session, students watch a powerful and emotional video on the life and tragic death of and 18 year old provisional driver and her best friend.  And in another, they sit with a crash survivor and hear first-hand how one poor choice can change a life forever.
