CodeZero works towards making New Zealand a place where no one is killed or seriously injured in road crashes.
Mark-Revill JohnsonDuring Covid-19 lockdown, life took a pause. I was unable to operate Revs Motorcycle Training, a specialist training company where I teach students to ride safely and aim to provide a skill for life, not just tips on how to pass a test. It was time to dig those 'projects' out of the cobwebs. One of those projects was to be able to present content that I had written for Parents/Coaches/Instructors to give their students (in particular teens) structured, accurate information to give novice drivers the skills necessary to not just drive a car, but to do so safely. In 27 years of police experience I only ever attended one crash that was due to mechanical failure and even that could have been prevented if the driver had maintained their car. My qualifications include Qualified driving instructor in NZ – I endorsement holder NZTA approved course provider – Motorcycle basic handling skills and Competence Based Training and Assessment NZ Police Gold Class driver Chief examiner (Cars) Institute of Advanced motorists (NZ) NZTA approved course provider – I Endorsement course (AA Driving School) Previously qualified driving instructor in UK- ADI UK Police Class 1 Advanced driver Former examiner Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (UK) Former Chief observer, Sefton group, Institute of Advanced motorists (UK) Most importantly of all, I am a parent.
Joanne BurnsWith a teen heading into their driving career, Marks' vision for a tool to teach parents, many of whom had not looked at a Road Code since they studied for their driving test, hit a note with me. Working alongside Mark to engage branding designers, app developers, marketing strategists and focus groups has been an absolute pleasure. Design to build has been a fantastic journey, drawing on my IT, Project Management and just plain 'Mum' skills. We hope you find value in CodeZero, if our App, contributes to the prevention of a minor or a major driving incident, or even better, prevents a fatality, our CodeZero journey has been a success.
