“Our organisation was founded because my brother died in March 2005 in a serious road crash not far from where he and I shared our house. In that one moment of stupidity, my mother lost a son, I lost a brother, his daughter lost a father, and he lost his future. All due to a moment of inattention and lapse of judgement.
For many years after my brother died, my other brother, struggled with depression, drug addiction and mental health issues, and one day he decided that he could no longer live with the pain and he committed suicide.
I live everyday with the legacy of these tragedies, but I am not alone in pain. There are too many families like mine in Australia that have been affected by road trauma, and that is why I started this Not For Profit organisation.
I feel that I am lucky to be part of this team with the core goal of saving lives. Road safety is at the heart of everything we do at Road Sense Australia.”

I read other websites offering their participants section10’s. Making it sound like I deserve to be let off for my actions. I chose your program over the others after hearing the amazing recommendations from the police, the courts and my lawyer. Did doing this program help me get a better sentence? Yes But that’s because of the invaluable information it gave me, and the way it helped me change my attitude on the road.
Thank you for allowing me to attend your programme. It drives a very strong message around what impact our decisions can have on not only ourselves but others as well. I took a lot from it. Thank you.
Listening to a your presenters and how road trauma affected their life, their experiences and how they still struggle was the biggest wake up call. It makes it all very real.
I honestly felt I had nothing to learn by doing TOIP. I only did it to try to get a more favourable outcome in Court. But now, no matter what my result, the education I have received has changed me forever.
