Entertainment in the Byron shire for the week beginning 1 December, 2021

All your entertainment news in one brilliant place

In the wake of the tragic loss of four young lives in a car crash last week I would like to send my condolences and offer of support to those grieving in the community.

We at the STEER Project are deeply saddened by the death of one of the passengers who had taken part in a Safer Drivers Course for Learners with us earlier this year.

I was immediately prompted by the community to answer ‘What can we do to save the lives of young people in cars?’. I sense the solution is to unite as community and do more to support and encourage young people to make safe choices.

I would like to profoundly thank all youth, parents, schools, businesses and community members who give STEER the opportunity to engage with them.

I suggest those wanting information and resources associated with youth safe transport visit www.steerproject.org.au and contact me personally.

Phil Preston, STEER project coordinator
