The Roads 2 Survival™ program
was initially developed in Australia by A/Professor William (Bill)
Griggs, AM, ASM, Director of Trauma Services at the Royal Adelaide Hospital along with major input
from teenagers, parents and many other concerned individuals and
The program is a community based
initiative. While modelled on a number of other initiatives
from around the world, it has been developed in Australia to
address Australian issues. The work of others
is gratefully acknowledged.
The Parent - Young Person Safe
Driving Agreement was initially trialled in Australia at Prince
Alfred College (PAC) in Adelaide, South Australia. It has now
been used in more than fifty schools within Australia and overseas.
As this is a community based initiative, we do not require any payment and the agreements are always free to download.
Australian Metropolitan Fire Service has used the Parent - Young
Person Safe Driving Agreement as part of its Road
Awareness and Accident Prevention program (RAAP) - an adaptation
of a program which involves emergency service personnel and also
sometimes young victims attending schools and discussing what happens
in road crashes with the students. This has been a very successful
liasion. Thousands of agreements have been distributed to students
in this way.
A number other organisations have
also made use of one or other of the Roads 2 Survival agreements
- a number of these are mentioned on our Supporters
Any organisation/school/group that
is interested in using any or all of the agreements is encouraged
to contact us or to just download the agreements. Customised agreements with your own logo can be produced
