ROAD SAFETY COMPETITION

Public vote – People’s Choice award

This competition invited university students to take a fresh look at some of the most complex issues in road safety. This year, student teams produced short video clips to answer the 2016 question:

How can we tackle the sense of entitlement on the roads in Australia and New Zealand?

Whether on our bikes, in our cars, even on the bus, sometimes we feel entitled on the roads. There is a sense that the road belongs to me when I want it and I am entitled to get where I want to go. But this sense of entitlement can lead to impatience, aggression, even road rage. For people riding bikes or walking, the roads can be an uncomfortable, even dangerous place. So how do we shift this attitude from ‘how to get where I want’ to ‘how do we get everyone to their destination safely’?
