Embracing child restraint safety in the APY Lands

Date posted: 20 December 2012

A pivotal Indigenous road safety program that focuses on child restraint education is being rolled out to four more remote communities in South Australia in the coming months.

The Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) Aboriginal driver licensing program has been working with child restraint professionals from Red Cross baby seats to provide child restraints and child restraint education to the Aboriginal Communities across the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands since early 2011.

Follow up visits to Aboriginal communities where the project has been provided allow for measurable outcomes in participation and feedback from Aboriginal community members.

The communities across the APY Lands selected to participate in the program include: Pipalyatjara, Kalka, Nyapari, Kanpi and Amata.
