The Australian Road Safety Foundation (ARSF) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to reducing the impacts of road trauma and saving lives.
ARSF is committed to promoting the prevention of physical and mental illness, death and disability that result from road crashes and incidents. It’s our mission to improve the safety of every road user, every day, to achieve a significant year-on-year reduction in road deaths and injuries nationally.
We achieve these aims through innovative road safety awareness programs, driver education, advocacy, research and community engagement.
ARSF’s initiative RoadSet, has been created with funding provided by the Australian Government as part of its pledge to support priority areas such as regional road safety, driver distraction, protecting vulnerable road users and reducing drug driving.
RoadSet is an innovative Ed-tech tool aimed at Year 9 students. It features ten memorable and engaging modules covering road safety issues related to pedestrians, passengers, cyclists, skateboard and scooter riders and ultimately becoming a safe driver.
Getting teenagers to pay attention to road safety messages can be a challenge. RoadSet’s approach is refreshingly different and talks to students on their level.
The road safety modules in RoadSet aim to support the quality teaching and learning of road safety in school and community road safety education programs. They are free to use and can be accessed on computers, smartphones and tablets.
