Rotary Club’s Driver Simulator visits Eurobodalla

Southern Phone were hosts of the Young, NSW, Rotary Club’s Driver Simulator in Moruya on July 3rd inviting students from around the Eurobodalla to attend a presentation and try out of the simulator.

The driver simulator was an initiative of the Young Rotary Club to be of benefit to the youth of the local community as well as an asset to the local Police & Citizens Youth Club.

The simulator was launched two years ago, where year 10 students from local High Schools in the Young, NSW participated in the program and were able to experience the dangers inherent in the "under the influence" & "distraction/texting" lessons.

Police from the Cootamundra Area Command witnessed this procedure and indicated that they would like to see this replicated across all schools in their Command area. This has been accomplished over the last twelve months where 15 schools have been visited & some 800 students have had firsthand experience of these dangers.

Feedback from teachers and students has been extremely positive, so much so that enquiries have come in from schools outside of the Young area. The visit to Moruya was in conjunction with a request to have the simulator visit a school in Pambula last week. It is now planned to increase the number of students who can benefit from this programme to above 1000 over the next 12 months.
