Managing Director, Supercheap Auto
Supercheap Auto are proud to partner with the Australian Road Safety Foundation in this journey, raising awareness and educational programs about road safety.
Our team and customers have an obvious passion for their cars and the open road. This partnership is a very logical fit and strengthens our commitment to road safety, and also builds on our previous road safety awareness programs including Check-It and Carma.
We look forward to working with the foundation on providing more accessible education programs to communities across Australia.
Foundation Founder, Australian Road Safety Foundation
We operate under the philosophy that it takes the choices and actions of every single road user to stop families, friends, colleagues and communities from facing the unspeakable tragedy of a death or life changing injury.
It’s why I’m so proud to be joining forces with Supercheap Auto, a partnership that will extend our road safety message into hundreds of towns and suburbs we may not have otherwise reached.
With this partnership we can save lives. We can be the influence that leads a road user to choose safety and prevent a road crash. Ultimately, helping to prevent thousands of mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and friends from grieving the loss of a loved one to road trauma.
