Free2go car maintenance workshop

RAC hosted its first ever car maintenance workshop in February for our free2go Roadside Assistance members and their parents.

Members who attended the workshop learnt about general car maintenance including how to change a tyre, fluids, lights and breakdown safety, and was run by roadside assistance patrols and RAC DTEC trainers. The free2go members and their parents were split up into small groups and rotated around the different demonstration stations getting one to one expertise from the patrols and driver trainers.

RAC DTEC helping keep Fair Game volunteers safely on track

Fair Game is a volunteer organisation inspiring healthy communities by delivering unique health education and fitness programs to underserviced communities through recycling donated sports equipment.

RAC DTEC is proud to have supported the group’s efforts since 2013 and in February 2015, RAC DTEC trainer, Jurgen Lunsmann, attended a Fair Game WA training session at Christ Church Grammar School, where 50 volunteers aged between 18 and 25 were preparing for their upcoming journey to deliver donated sports equipment to remote Western Australian Communities. 

Assumptions behind the wheel

There are essentially two kinds of assumptions we can make when we are driving:

  1. What other drivers are going to do; and
  2. What conditions we will encounter during our drive – will it always be the same each time?

The first assumption can create all sorts of problems if we act upon those assumptions.
