The event on October 5 was narrated by Pete Snodden of Cool FM and delivered a hard-hitting safety message by telling the story of Craig, a young driver who is involved in a collision.

The story was told through the experience of the emergency services who attended the scene.

It provided a platform to positively influence the driving behaviour of 17 and 18-year-olds as they commence their driving career.


The Cool FM breakfast show was also broadcast from school that morning.
