Young drivers received a dire warning from emergency services workers last week – drive safely or face life-changing – or ending – consequences.

The Teenage Road Information Program (TRIP) evening was held on Wednesday 13 August at Heritage Funeral Homes in Woori Yallock to a packed room of teenagers and parents.

Emergency service crews organised the evening which was aimed at delivering a hard-hitting message to teenagers from the people who see road trauma first-hand.

The message behind the program is simple – that one death on the roads is too many and that poor driving decisions can have a ripple effect on many people’s lives.
