CONSTABLE Care Child Safety Foundation has won a Australian Road Safety Award for its world-first road safety app.

The free Arility Road Safety app, launched last year, was developed by IT experts DSBS and the Maylands-based foundation.

It has six road safety activities that allow students to see and experience risk at locations including bus stops and railway crossings in an augmented reality environment.
