BRAKE is a not for profit organisation, comprising volunteers from a range of specialist fields.
There are Police Officers who have had enough of telling parents that their novice driver has been in a car crash. There are paramedics who attend these crashes. There are teachers helping with education and curriculum that see the empty chairs in their classrooms after car crashes and have to support the friends and families of the young people who have died.
There are road safety specialists and transport advisors who know that this carnage can be reduced and have offered their time and advice to help build this program. Then there are public figures from the film and television industry that know that at times young people need visual prompts to learn, and there are business advisors and community people who work to ensure the synergy of all these volunteers is captured and supported.
All of these people are volunteers and believe that the road toll and injures can be reduced with early and appropriate education. BRAKE understands that our young drivers will listen to advice when there is justification and rational behind that advice. That is why this parent book will be valuable to you.
The BRAKE team is passionate about road safety and asks that you continue that passion.
Road Safety is not only a government problem, it is a whole of community issue and people in the community need to address the issue. Our communities are very strong and arguably are the vital key in reducing our road toll through action. BRAKE is an excellent starting point.
