The innovative “Sharing the Road” Program “Don’t Drive a Lemon” was officially launched in 2004. Its foundation sponsors Alloomba Visions & Solutions, South Central Trucks-Volvo, South Australian Road Transport Association, CGU & NTI Insurance proudly support the program.
The number one priority of this program is Road Safety and Sharing the Road with Other Vehicles.
The program is aimed at reaching out to the general community and school students.
The “Lemon Car” is an average old type of motor vehicle with a combination of over 40 defects and unsafe examples.
It is very engaging, interactive and a lot of fun but with a serious message achieving the following outcomes:
- Road Safety Knowledge
- Fatal Five Message
- Sharing the Road with Other Vehicles
- Interactive way of identifying unsafe examples
- Vehicle Component Identification
- Vehicle Maintenance
- Good Motoring Practices
- WH&S Working Safely

The “Lemon Car” is available with the following workstations:

- Wheel Change Assembly
We can custom design a program that suits your needs!
