Journeys : June July 2009
Life on the move Free RACT winter safety checks are on again soon T he RACT will once again provide free vehicle safety checks at a number of locations around Tasmania. Darren Moody, RACT’s General Manager Roadside and Technical Services, said that his team’s focus would again include tyre safety and child restraints. “We’ll also be checking battery health and cooling systems – in the past, these have been issues of concern as we enter the coldest part of the year,” he said. We encourage all members of the public – not only RACT members – to take advantage of these free sessions. It’s a good opportunity to run a simple health check on your car and make sure you’re covering key safety issues in a season when driving conditions can be at their most hazardous. Here’s where you can get your free winter safety check Launceston Devonport Burnie Rosny Centro/Kmart 9 June 10.30am-3pm Location TBA 23 June 11am-3pm Centro/Kmart 24 June 10.30am-3pm Eastlands 2 July 10.30am-3pm New Town Kingston Glenorchy Centro/Kmart 7 July 10am-3pm Channel Court 9 July 10.30am-3pm Northgate 14 July 10.30am-3pm Locations will also be advertised in local newspapers.

All Roadside members were eligible to be in the draw and this year’s winner is Jane Richardson of South Hobart. One for the south A Jane, who has been an RACT member for 19 years, is a child psychologist for the Education Department. Until now, she has travelled the state in a Mitsubishi van – now, she’ll drive in style in her new Mazda. We phoned Jane at work to tell her the good news. That evening, she sent us this email: When you rang today, I was in the middle of a serious situation with a parent at one of my schools. Therefore my flat response to your fantastic news must have sounded at bit odd. But to have yelled out ‘yippee’ would have been inappropriate at the time! It wasn’t until I got in my dilapidated old Mitsubishi van at the end of the school day that it dawned on me and the tears started to flow. This fantastic news has come at the perfect time – my partner and I had just started to look for a cheap second-hand car to buy. PTY LTD I have always helped out my relatives, and I am currently paying for extra services for my 91 year-old dad. So winning this car is a very lucky break and a welcome relief. Thank you very much – I’ve never had a new car, so I am truly delighted! Jane We also discovered that Jane had recently given a gift of RACT membership to a friend who has young children, including one who is critically ill from time to time. Jane thought her friend needed the security of knowing she could call for help if her old car broke down. It’s great to know that our prize has been won by someone like Jane Richardson.
