The Northern Territory's 'SafeDrive' program has taken home two gongs at the national Road Safety Awards.
The state picked up awards for the Indigenous Road Safety category and State Government section – scooping both trophies it was nominated for.
Minister for Transport Peter Styles said these awards will make the roads safer, which is great for residents of property in Darwin.
The program incorporates messages about safety issues such as seat belts, vehicle overcrowding, drink driving, speed and first aid.
It also emphasises the responsibility of car ownership such as making sure cars are roadworthy, registered and insured.
"From April 2012 to September 2013, the Department of Transport have issued under the program, 396 birth certificates, 983 learners’ licenses, 226 provisional licenses, undertaken 250 MVR transactions and delivered 1793 drivers lessons," said Mr Styles.
He added that he was impressed with the team's work and that the program is a great asset to the Northern Territory.
It will help those in remote communities learn to stay safe on the roads, which will benefit residents of real estate in Darwin as it may reduce the number of accidents and incidents on the road.
