Women Against Road Toll

The Women Against Road Toll initiative aims to highlight the crucial role that women play regarding road safety in the family unit.

 

No more do we want to hear of “Dad” driving the family home after a few beers while “Mum” sits in the passenger seat having not had a drink at all.

No more do we want any Parents, Grandparents, Uncles, Aunties displaying dangerous driver behaviours to their young loved ones (our future drivers).

 

We want women to make a stand and become our road safety advocates in the home. We want the next generation of drivers to learn how to be safe, responsible drivers. They will learn this from their parents and any grown ups that drive them around on a regular basis.

Each year we host a Women Against Road Toll High Tea.

 

These are wonderful events hosted by our Ambassador, Channel 7s Kelly Golding.

 

Kelly is passionate about road safety having lost her brother on the road.

Each year we have a guest speaker.

 

In 2020 Holly Scott (Young Australian of The Year finalist) spoke about her life changing crash, which nearly killed her.

Her message was to always remain focused on the road. We always think that crashes happen to everyone else, they don’t.

The High Tea has grown every year with well over 100 guests in 2020 enjoying a glass of bubbles on arrival, the renowned Stamford Grand High Tea, a fun silent auction, a raffle, wonderful live music and the chance to catch up with friends and family on a Sunday afternoon overlooking the beautiful Glenelg coastline.
