RYDA is a practical and powerful road safety education program that helps high school students lay the foundation for safe road use throughout their lives.
The RYDA program is delivered nation-wide each year to more than 50,000 high school students.
I am pleased we are supporting initiatives like RYDA which is better preparing them for a lifetime of save driving.
