The Full Gear Project was co-designed by young people, a local community house and the Glenorchy City Council and aimed to address unsafe/illegal motorcycle riding and to promote positive road safety messaging in the community. This paper explores how social issues and safety issues can be jointly addressed, the role of social workers and other support organisations in addressing road safety with young people and the impacts on the local and broader community.
