Crash Bash

about crash bash

Crash Bash is an educational road safety programme for secondary school students organised by Christchurch City Council in collaboration with NZ Police.  Funding for the programme is provided by Council and the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA). 

The programme is toured as a contemporary stage performance to over 25 schools in the Canterbury area reaching around 14,000 students with key road safety messages.   

2018 looks set to be another exciting year for Crash Bash with a fresh new show "Risk Factors" being produced and toured by Christchurch's own The Court Theatre.  The programme this year includes footage of secondary school students from across Canterbury  sharing their thoughts on driving and footage of some key driving skills to keep young drivers safe on the road.

The  key messages this year focus on skills and tips to address driving behaviours which cause the most deaths or serious injuries for young drivers including:

  • Approaching intersections and corners
  • Safe following distances
  • Cell phone distraction 

The Crash Bash team will be joined on the tour at each school by Constable Shane Thomson from Canterbury Road Policing.
