CarbonBlack: partner of the VIC Guide to Driver Safety
The VIC Guide to Driver Safety is a new safety initiative officially being launched on Wednesday 5 September in front of Year 11 students at St Aloysius College in North Melbourne.
Produced by Pro-Visual Publishing the wall-mountable Guide aims to raise awareness of the key areas causing injury and fatality on Victorian roads by inexperienced drivers – speeding, distractions, fatigue, and alcohol and drugs.
The Hon. Nazih Elasmar Member for Northern Metropolitan and Deputy Lord Mayor of Melbourne Gary Singer will be speaking at the launch to show their support for young driver safety.
Senior Constable Peter Barnhoorn and Senior Constable Ashley Wigg from the Regional Traffic Tasking Unit in Moorabin will be bringing the Police Smart Car along to show students. Shura Taft and Matt Saraceni from Nova 100 will also be speaking.
Pro-Visual Publishing has worked with VicRoads to ensure the information used on the Guide is accurate and takes into account the new Graduated Licensing System which commenced with the introduction of new alcohol interlock laws on 1 January 2007.
Copies of the Guide will be sent free of charge to all Government and Non Government Secondary and Central Schools, TAFE and University Campuses, Advanced Driver Training Schools and all VicRoads Branches throughout Victoria this week.
The media are invited to attend the launch which will commence at 1.45pm and finish at approximately 2.15pm, on the school netball courts at St Aloysius College located at 31 Curran St, North Melbourne.
