THE Nationals’ Member for Riverina Michael McCormack is urging Grenfell’s young drivers and their parents in the Riverina and Central West to take advantage of the free safe-driving program, keys2drive.

The federal government recently approved an additional $16 million to extend the keys2drive program for a further four years following a commitment in the 2017 Budget.

The program aims to reduce road trauma, particularly in regional areas.

“I urge and encourage young drivers to take part in this wonderful initiative from the Liberals and Nationals’ government,” Mr McCormack said.

“We are committed to reducing the number of road deaths among drivers.

“Obviously, the ultimate aim is to have a road network with zero deaths and injuries.

“The numbers prove we are getting the job done,” Mr McCormack said.
