CAMS pushes road safety message
- 6th July 2010, 9:52am
CAMS acknowledge the serious road safety and behaviour issues confronting young drivers and recognise the opportunity to contribute to road safety especially targeting youth via its resources and extensive club networks throughout Australia. The CAMS IGNITION program has been developed to assist with these issues.
As part of CAMS driving this message a specific IGNITION day was held last Friday with the support of the MG Car Club in Geelong, Victoria. Channel 9’s A Current Affair TV crew were there to capture the day and are preparing a story to be aired on tomorrow (Tuesday) nights’ program. The story will feature interviews with the students, parents, CAMS President and CAMS CEO.
The CAMS IGNITION program is a community development initiative by CAMS and its member clubs across Australia, working with their local communities. The program is aimed at achieving better road safety outcomes for young people.
The Program is designed to give young pre-leaner and learner drivers the chance to drive a vehicle and gain an introduction to road safety before obtaining their learner’s permit and then probationary drivers licence. This initiative will enable young people to develop skills and attitudes which they will later be able to transfer to their experience on the roads.
Nick Coe from A Current Affair is compiling the story which is scheduled for 6.30pm Tuesday 6th July on Channel 9.
