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 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.   

2017 looks set to be an exciting year for Crash Bash with a fresh new format which is being produced and toured by Christchurch's own Court Theatre.  The programme this year includes footage of secondary school students from across Canterbury participating in a safe driving challenge with a professional driving instructor!

The purpose of the driving challenge is to demonstrate safe driving skills that focus on specific driving behaviours which cause the most deaths or serious injuries for young drivers including:

  • Cornering
  • Stopping and following distances
  • Distraction - inside and outside the vehicle

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

Crash Bash is pleased to have the sponsored support this year from Miles Toyota Christchurch who are providing the tour vehicle.

For further information or bookings for 2017 at your school, please contact Angela McDonnell  Angela.McDonnell@ccc.govt.nz,  or phone (03) 941 8379.
