On Friday 26 August 2022, MAIC along with the Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC), proudly unveiled new First Peoples’ artistically designed car wraps as part of the Braking the Cycle program.
The car wraps were designed by Uncle Paul Calcott, and will be used on vehicles at different PCYC locations throughout Queensland.
Celebrating its 10th birthday in August, Braking the Cycle is a volunteer driver mentor program designed to support learner drivers without access to a supervisor or registered vehicle to complete their logbook hours. The aim of the program is to provide young people with increased employment opportunities, community connection and driver education.
MAIC has been a proud sponsor of the Braking the Cycle program since 2017, providing initial funding of $5.163 million across three years. After the success of the program, MAIC recommitted in 2020 with an additional funding of $15.965 million across a five-year period. These further funds allowed for extension of the program across the state.
MAIC has also leveraged off its relationship with PCYC to promote the ‘Drive Safe, Drive Deadly’ campaign, which is focused on raising awareness amongst First Peoples on the importance of road safety and knowledge around CTP insurance.
MAIC would like to thank Uncle Paul for working with us and PCYC on the Braking the Cycle program and creating a beautiful car wrap that continues to encourage First People to successfully obtain their licences, while educating on the importance of road safety.
