Street Smart – creating safer, smarter drivers

Road crashes are one of the leading causes of death for people under the age of 25. 

To help change this, RAA runs Street Smart High – an annual road safety event that demonstrates the realities of road trauma and gives young and soon-to-be drivers the knowledge they need to stay safe on the road. 

Held in partnership with the Government of South Australia, thousands of high-school students attend every year.

What happens at a Street Smart High event?

Street Smart High is open to students in years 10 to 12 across South Australia, and attendance is free.

On the day, students will:

  • witness a simulated crash scene, including pre-and-post-crash analysis;
  • hear from young people whose lives have been affected by road trauma; and,
  • learn road safety skills and knowledge.

How your school can take part

To book your school in to our next event or to find out more, contact RAA’s Manager of School Education, David Fairlie on 8202 8214 or enquire online.
