Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV) is committed to educating the community and raising public awareness about road trauma and how it affects people’s lives. We do this by positively influencing driver attitudes and behaviours with the aim of reducing crashes and the resulting trauma.
RTSSV delivers a range of educational services that reach more than a thousand people each year.
Road Trauma Awareness Seminars (RTAS) are delivered in conjunction with the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria to traffic offenders as part of sentencing options. RTAS has been growing for more than 10 years and is delivered in 28 locations across Victoria each month. The 2018 calendar is available now.
Drive to Learn program is specifically aimed at diverting young people from further entry into the justice system, working with the Children’s Court Youth Diversion Service and Victoria Police. It is currently offered across the state as required. We are also developing a Koori specific program in conjunction with Goolum Goolum Aboriginal Co-Op based in Horsham.

People who have been personally impacted by road trauma play a critical role in our education programs.
- Help promote road safety in your local community.
- Have you been involved in a serious road incident?
- Are you looking to share your story with others in the hope that one less family is impacted by road trauma?
RTSSV delivers local education programs that address the attitudes and behaviours of road users. Volunteers share their personal stories to get the road safety message out into the community and ultimately save lives!
If you have been:
- injured or had a family member/friend injured or die
- first on the scene at a serious road incident
- a witness to a road incident
- a driver involved in a serious road incident
- an emergency service worker attending a road incident
…we would like to speak to you! More information
