  • St Luke's Student Wins UbiCar Challenge

    Posted On 06 July, 2018

    Congratulations to Cassie Hargreaves, who has won the UbiCar Year 12 Safe Driver Challenge!  

     

    The Year 12 Safe Driver challenge is a program that St Luke’s is piloting, together with UbiCar, to increase the safety of our Senior students who are very new to driving.  UbiCar has created an App that can be uploaded to the students’ mobile phones, which enables them to tracks and records how safely  they are driving.  It is a known statistic that young drivers are amongst a high-risk group who are over-represented in accidents and fatalities on Australian roads and UbiCar aims to positively change driving behaviour and support safer driving. 

    Once uploaded, the UbiCar free app will automatically track a driver’s performance at the end of each journey, and allocate scores based on distraction (phone usage), speeding, hard braking, hard acceleration and hard cornering.
