RYDA Rotary Youth Driver Awareness
Every year South Wairarapa Rotary members can be seen at Solway Showgrounds escorting Year 12 students from local secondary schools as they go from workshop to workshop at the annual RYDA day.
Road Safety Education Limited (RSE) provides the RYDA programme. It is a not-for-profit organisation with a commitment to the reduction of youth road trauma in New Zealand through the delivery of quality, evidence based road safety education programmes. Young people aged 15-24 represent less than 15% of the population yet account for around one quarter of deaths and injuries on our roads.
There will be more information about the next training day for schools and students on our website early in the new year. In the meantime, please go to the Road Safety Education site for background on this prize-winning programme.
