Out and About
The MFS Road Awareness Program (RAP) is a part of South Australia's Road Safety education that is increasing Road Safety Awareness and helping to drive down the South Australian Road Toll in the 16-24 year old age bracket.
16-24 year olds*
These numbers have coincided with the MFS presenting to twice as many schools / groups in this period.
The feedback we get from RAP recipients is that they look at Road Safety through different eyes after seeing our RAP Presentation.
RAP is now heading into its 8th year and has been delivered to almost 80,000 young people.
The RAP message is 'Look after your mates', you get to choose the risk, but you have no control over the consequences.
Make good decisions and speak up if you are in a car and not feeling comfortable because of the behaviour of the driver or other passengers. Driving can and should be a great experience, lead the way by setting a smart and safe example as a road user, inspire your mates to do the same.
