Bstreetsmart is an injury prevention program hosted by Westmead Hospital's Trauma Service in response to the fact adolescent drivers represent only 14% of licence holders but are involved in 21% of fatal crashes.

More than 26,000 high school students visited Quodos Bank Arena in Sydney over three days in August, 2017 to witness simulated crash scenarios and hear from road trauma survivors as part of a road safety initiative designed to encourage young people to make safer choices as a driver and passenger.

Young drivers are most at risk in the first six months of driving solo on their P-Plates and represent approximately 25% of hospital road trauma admissions.

Bstreetsmart posted a video to YouTube of one of their live events which provides teens and their parents with a realistic look at the trauma caused by road crashes and gives them information and strategies in an attempt to reduce serious injuries and deaths. Not alI students get the opportunity to attend such an important event, so to view the full 3.5 hour program click on the following link:
