Officers from the Queensland Police Service and local Queensland Ambulance Service took over the carpark at the Logan Hyperdome to talk road safety with residents.
A number of police vehicles and ambulances were in attendance for kids and the odd intrigued adult to hope in and check out all the features and gadgets.
The highlight of the event was the driving simulator where people young and old got behind the wheel of a vehicle in different road conditions to see how they went. The police than added in using a mobile phone while driving to show the dangers of how texting and driving really is.
Jasmin, a young recent L plate licence holder said after using the simulator that she was kind of nervous, but it was kind of fun.
“I was nervous as it was the police handing me the phone and when I was using it, it was a lot harder to drive and I ended up on the wrong side of the road and crashed,” said Jasmin.
“Now I have done this I will never have my phone in my hand and take it slower in rainy weather conditions.”
Cr Miriam Stemp attended the event and was happy to see many young people at the event and having a go on the simulator.
“There is lots of great information in particular if you have a young person learning to drive or on their P’s,” said Cr Stemp.
“There is even a driving simulator where you can test your skills behind the wheel.
“Great to see the emergency services teaming up for a road safety display reminding motorists there are no excuses when it comes to road safety during these school holidays.”
