The program is directed at preventing alcohol and risk related trauma in serious dangerous driving offenders, and is run in conjunction with the Sunshine Magistrate’s Court, Victoria Police and the Royal Melbourne Hospital Trauma Service. Each program involves 30 young serious road offenders in a confronting three part counselling and face to face experience regime (including with victims and families of serious motor vehicle accidents) before returning to Court, prior to sentencing, to present their individual program experiences and its impacts on them. Evidence of the success of the program is that just 9% of its participants are seen in Court again after one year.
