    • World first road safety app to be rolled out by Constable Care Safety School
    • $100,000 in funding from RTTA to develop road safety education app
    • McGowan Government bringing road safety into classrooms across WA 

    Road Safety Minister Michelle Roberts has launched a new interactive reality-based app to make road safety education accessible to more students across Western Australia.

     

    The Constable Care Safety School has developed the Arility Road Safety Pack which allows students to navigate a range of dangerous scenarios on the road without being at risk.

     

    It has been specifically designed for children aged between 4-11 and can be downloaded onto iPads, giving state-wide access to important road safety lessons.

     

    The technology was developed using $100,000 from the Road Trauma Trust Account and is free for every school to utilise.

     

    The State Government is committed to reducing road trauma in Western Australia.

     

    The app is available, from today, at the Apple Store.

     

    Comments attributed to Police and Road Safety Minister Michelle Roberts:

     

    "The Constable Care Safety School does outstanding work teaching young children important road safety skills.

     

    "The development of this new app means those lessons will now be available to students right across Western Australia.

     

    "It will allow them to navigate dangerous situations on the road without being at risk.

     

    "This initiative is not just about saving the lives of children on WA roads, it's also about our support for road safety education.

     

    "Importantly, it will set our young people on the path, at a young age, to be road safety advocates in their communities.
