MIGRANTS new to town can find it difficult enough to integrate into a community let alone navigating roads with different traffic laws.
Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours Inc is helping migrants gain experience and skills with its driver safety sessions, which have been announced as one of four outstanding NRMA Insurance Community Grant recipients.
The network could triple its funding if it wins the People's Choice Award.
Even if Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours achieves 1000 votes, they'll still double their funding.
WIN director Natalia Muszkat said tripling the program's funds would allow them to expand it to Gladstone State High School.
"Gladstone is growing and receives new residents from all areas of Australia and overseas, many of whom are not familiar with the way in which Australian roads work," she said.
Ms Muszkat hopes everyone in Gladstone gets behind the project and votes at www.communitygrantsprogram.com.au/win to see benefits region wide.
