The 2017 KARI City Origin team will visit Oberon High School in the lead-up to the Country-City clash in Mudgee next weekend to deliver important road safety messages after two former students tragically lost their lives on the road last year.
As part of a new community partnership announced with Transport for NSW, Brad Fittler’s side will make the heart-warming visit to Oberon’s only high school on Thursday (May 4) on their way to Mudgee.
The ‘Knock-On effect’ campaign encourages people to make smarter and safer choices behind the wheel and highlights the harrowing effects road trauma is having on local communities, especially in country NSW, where of the 384 lives lost on NSW roads in 2016, 254 people were killed on country roads.
Hear the story of Tristan Kennedy, who tells of his first-hand account and experience of road trauma.
