The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) has proudly supported the South Australia Police (SAPOL) Road Safety Education programs for more than 10 years.
The support of the program has assisted to position MAC as the leader in road safety, and the organisation which makes the most difference to road safety amongst 16-39 year old South Australian males.
MAC’s funding allows for the resourcing of SAPOL personnel, and other associated costs, to deliver nearly 900 education sessions throughout metropolitan and regional South Australia.
The funding allows for approximately 60,000 people to partake in road safety education in their respective schools, community groups/clubs and businesses.
SAPOL’s road safety program objectives are to:
- Increase the knowledge and skills of all road users in road safety;
- Influence attitudes and change behaviours;
- Reduce the number and severity of road crashes;
- Create awareness of the ‘Fatal Five’;
- Drink and Drug Driving;
- Dangerous Road Users;
- Reinforce positive attitudes towards road behaviour.
SAPOL acknowledges the main causes of crashes and highlights these within its road safety education presentations. These are stated as priorities for both SAPOL and MAC.
