too many young drivers killed each day. lets work to prevent it
1000 young people under the age of 25 die every day on the world's roads. Unlike Zenani Mandela, most are not born into a famous family. But, just like Zenani, they are much loved and greatly missed by their families.
The Zenani Campaign is an initiative in support of the UN's Decade of Action for Road Safey. Together we can save millions of lives.

Road Safety Educators Australia has been accredited as a driver training provider for NDIS.
We are excited about providing our effective driver education services to NDIS clients.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory agency whose role is to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers. The NDIS will mean peace of mind for every Australian, for anyone who has, or might acquire, a disability.
Our priority is to ensure people with disability continue to get the support they need. This will require big changes to existing disability support systems. We are introducing the scheme gradually to ensure a smooth transition for people with disability and support providers. From 1 July 2013, the first stage of the Scheme rolled out in South Australia, Tasmania, the Barwon area of Victoria and the Hunter area in New South Wales. Western Australia, the ACT and the Northern Territory joined the launch in July 2014.
