Ensuring Every Citizen Stays Ahead on the Streets

The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland’s (RACQ) commitment to fostering road safety education extends beyond Queensland’s borders, making a significant impact in Townsville.

Through its comprehensive Streets Ahead program, RACQ is transforming how citizens, young and old, perceive and navigate road safety.

Teaching Safety at Every Stage

From primary school to adulthood, RACQ’s initiative tailors age-specific modules.

For younger minds, the focus is on fundamental lessons encompassing passenger, pedestrian, and bicycle safety.

Meanwhile, high school programs delve into the unique challenges of driving, financial responsibility, and the ‘Fatal Five’ risks.

A Community-Centric Approach

Beyond schools, RACQ’s community programs, such as Kids & Cars and Years Ahead, reach a wider audience.

These sessions not only educate on current road rules but also equip participants with practical strategies for safe driving and riding, fostering a culture of responsible road behaviour.

Inclusivity in Action

In a recent Townsville initiative, RACQ extended its reach to communities where English is a secondary language.

This initiative, underscoring inclusivity, demonstrated RACQ’s commitment to leaving no one behind in their pursuit of road safety.

Driving Towards a Safer Future

RACQ’s unwavering dedication to educating and empowering Townsville’s diverse population reflects their pledge to be a force for good.

Through knowledge dissemination and practical guidance, RACQ is not just shaping safer roads but also nurturing a community equipped to navigate them adeptly.

With RACQ’s tireless efforts, Townsville stands poised to embrace a future where road safety is not just a lesson but a way of life.
