Driveway Runover Demo:
The Driveway Runover kit was developed by Safekids NZ to address the lack of education around driveway safety in New Zealand. The kit is an interactive resource designed to educate and increase driveway risk awareness.
It is great for smaller groups as it does involve participants entering and exiting a vehicle to get the full effect of the demonstration. It can be used at community events and there are two available in Taranaki. Roadsafe Taranaki has one based in Hawera and the Health Promotion Unit at the Taranaki District Health Board has one based in New Plymouth. There is no charge to use this kit.
Fatal Vision Goggles:
The Fatal Vision Goggles are a hands-on tool that allows people to experience, with a sober mind, the effects of alcohol, drugs or fatigue. The sessions demonstrate how your balance, vision, reaction time and judgement can be affected and are relevant to anyone who drives or operates machinery.
It is great for groups of around 10 to 15 or during an all-day event as a constant stream of people can participate one at a time and it takes approximately two to three minutes per person.
