The world’s first dedicated youth road safety education complex, Road to Zero, opened this week at Melbourne Museum.
With young drivers aged 18 to 25 accounting for 24 per cent of deaths on Victoria’s roads last year, it’s critical that we find new ways to get them thinking about safety before getting their licence. Developed by the TAC in partnership with Melbourne Museum, this new permanent exhibit does just that – through a range of highly interactive and immersive experiences that explore the physics of motion and the limits of the human body.
We were lucky enough to be among the first people through the complex this week. More than 20,000 year 9 & 10 students are expected to follow in the next 12 months.
The companion Outreach Program, which we are designing and developing, will be launched early next year.
