Why I am passionate about RTSSV?
My aunt at 21-years-old was significantly disfigured in a fiery car accident in the south of England.  She was lucky to survive, and spent many months in the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead. This National Health Service hospital specialises in providing life-changing reconstructive surgery, burns care and rehabilitation services. Following her recovery, she spent years teaching burns victims (often through road trauma) in the use of cosmetic make-up to hide their disfigurement.  Having seen her work, I admire the amazing resilience displayed by the victims of road trauma, and the importance of caring and professional support.

Richard Watkins - Secretary/Public Office

Richard Watkins - Secretary/Public Office
APM, BA, MCrim, MPPM

  • 34 years policing experience in general policing and road policing roles.
  • Managed the state-wide response for the investigation of culpable driving (fatal) collisions.
  • Senior management experience providing business intelligence and business analytics to executive level.
  • Experience in developing and implementing strategies to support the reduction of road trauma.

Why I am passionate about RTSSV?
Having attended fatal and serious injury crashes and seen the impact road trauma has on families and communities I was struck by how difficult it can be for some people to find support. I became involved with RTSSV who is a group that will help any person impacted by road trauma. RTSSV provides support for many people that other groups cannot or do not support. Through meeting with victims of road trauma and seeing the difference that the professional and volunteer staff at RTSSV can make in their lives I wanted to find a way of supporting their work.

Why am I passionate about RTSSV?
My family and I have experienced the worst of road trauma when our beautiful daughter Freya died after being hit by a car at the tender age of four. I have personally benefitted from the services of RTSSV since then, and am particularly passionate about the preventative and educational work we do so that as few people as possible ever have to go through similar pain.

Simon Bolles

Simon Bolles
BCom, Grad Dip Appl Fin, FCPA(FPS), GAICD

  • 30 year career in investment banking/stockbroking  - research, equity capital markets, M&A, relationship management/business development, corporate broking/access, investor relations and communications.
  • Ten years' experience on boards and sub-committees. Member of four boards, independent member of two board committees, prequalified Independent Member NSW and Tasmanian Governments.

Why I am passionate about RTSSV?
I am passionate about limiting the impact of road trauma for two reasons. Firstly, it takes a disproportionate number of very young adults in their prime. Secondly, I lost my brother-in-law’s brother to a road crash. He was my ‘opposite number’ in that family and, although it was many years ago, the impact has not left me.

Why I am passionate about RTSSV?
Anyone can be a victim of road trauma. The waves of the traumatic event itself radiate out to many people.  The experience-based counselling and education services RTSSV provides are vital to the victims of this damaging social dysfunction. I would not want to live in a society where these services are not available.
