RAA’s free advice drives safety and fun on Eyre Peninsula

Tuesday, 25th Sep 2018

Which vehicle gives way when traffic is merging from two lanes into one?

How do you save money on fuel?

These are some of the questions RAA experts can help you with at the free Years Ahead workshops to be held in Port Lincoln next month.

The workshops are proving popular, with one being held at the Port Lincoln Bowling Club already booked out.

Still open for bookings, however, are the Road Rules Quiz and Lifestyle workshops which provide mature drivers with advice and tips to help them stay mobile and keep safe on the road.

The quiz is an interactive presentation that covers both general road rules and give way rules. The quiz also deals with well-established and commonly misunderstood road rules, as well as new road rules.

RAA’s Manager of Community Education, Belinda Maloney said that the workshops also allow drivers to have some fun while putting their driving knowledge to the test.

“To spice up the competition, we give each quiz participant a “clicker’’ so that their group’s answers can be recorded and displayed in real time on a big screen, which usually sparks interesting discussion afterwards!,” Ms Maloney said.

The Lifestyle workshop covers a range of topics and is designed for drivers who are either approaching or already enjoying their retirement. Valuable advice and information is provided to place these drivers in pole position for this time of their lives.

“We motor through topics such as taking holidays, securing your home while you’re away, running the “grandchildren taxi’’, driving interstate and how to look after your car and yourself behind the wheel,” Ms Maloney said.

Importantly, in the face of rising petrol prices, RAA experts are also on hand to tell you how to save money on fuel.

Bookings are essential for both workshops, which are being held on Thursday, 4 October at Port Lincoln Library, 2 London Street, Port Lincoln. The lifestyle presentation starts at 10.30am and the road rules quiz workshop will run from 2pm.
