In Australia, road trauma is the leading cause of death and second most frequent cause of hospitalisation among children aged 0-14 years. Each year, almost 100 children aged 0-12 years are seriously injured or killed as passengers in motor vehicles on Victorian roads. Learning how to be safe as a passenger can help reduce the risk to children.

In this lesson, students discover vehicle safety features of cars, learn about the ‘safety door’ for getting in and out of the car, and think about how they can be a safe passenger.
