Our job is normally fun, but sometimes we also have to cover the sad parts in life. This is Ben’s story.

When something bad happens, often the only way to have any good come from it, is to tell your story and try to steer other’s away from making the same decisions that led to the tragedy. Roadsafe NZ wanted to give Ben a platform to share his.

Ben was a young guy having fun with some mates at a party in Taradale, Napier, when he and a group of friends decided to get into a vehicle after drinking. Ten days later, he woke up in Wellington Hospital ICU. His life would never be the same.
