The Road Safety Commission at the Perth Royal Show

September 24th, 2016 – October 1st, 2016

Our stand at the Perth Royal Show focussed on driver distraction. Using our virtual reality education tool, we tested peoples focus, with everything from mobile phones to ice-cream vans, to see if their attention would be diverted from the road ahead. We also, in conjunction with our current Zero Heroes campaign, set out to thank as many of WA’s safe drivers as we could – giving away $100 of free fuel to one lucky Zero Hero each day.

Are you a Zero Hero? Find out at the Department of Transport website.
