Santos proudly partnered with the Australian Driving Institute to fund valuable road safety training programs in Roma for learner and provisional drivers during September and October 2021.
With road accidents in the Maranoa region of Queensland being higher amongst younger drivers, this program enabled local kids to access professional training on best practice driver safety from qualified instructors. There were 20 cars on the Ironbark Drag Strip over both sessions with people travelling from across the region including the Arcadia Valley to participate.
This initiative educated local youth and their parents on valuable road safety practices including hazard perception, observation skills, risk management, and defensive driving techniques. Feedback collected from both the parent and student drivers highlighted the value of this training and the important, lifesaving skills that were learnt on the day.
