Year 8 and 9 - My safety, my choice
There are a range of factors that influence 12–15 year olds’ road use behaviours including road safety advertising and social trends.
With an increasing number of road users and vehicles on our roads, the risk for road users also increases, including for adolescents cycling, walking, and travelling in vehicles. All road users become significantly more vulnerable when people take risks and engage in unsafe road behaviours.
In this unit students will develop an understanding that road safety campaigns are a health promotion strategy used to advocate for improved road safety behaviours of individuals and communities. There is a focus on exploring past and present road safety campaigns and identifying how their design might elicit particular responses from a target audience, through the deconstruction of road safety advertising material.
