RYDA is designed for 16-18 year old students who are approaching that crucial time in their lives where they start to drive independently or are travelling as passengers of one of their peers. The day involved the Year 11s participating in a series of practical workshops that aim to change the way young people think about road safety.
Students witnessed how speed effects stopping distances, with many students surprised at how long it took for the car to become stationary at relatively low speeds.
Road safety education develops knowledge, skills, attitudes and even more importantly – values that enable pedestrians, cyclists, motor cyclists, drivers and passengers to use the road safely.
Thank you to the presenters and our students who asked insightful questions and behaved respectfully throughout the day.
