Drive events organised by Drive Against Depression Ltd. (“DAD”) are offered to the community withthe intention to:
– Provide an inclusive opportunity for enjoying open roads.
– Offer a judgement-free environment for discussions around mental health.

As a participant I acknowledge that:
– DAD drive events are non-competitive drives using open roads. As such all road rules, speed limits and expectations of courteous driving behaviour apply.
– I am required to hold my own comprehensive motor vehicle and third party insurance.
– DAD provides public liability insurance.

– Any participating vehicle must be in roadworthy condition.
– Any discussions about mental health or mental health services have no intention to replace professional advice and medical treatment.
– Any damage to motor vehicles is the sole responsibility of the drivers and owners.

In exchange for attending or participating in DAD events, I agree:
– To release DAD and any entities to the extent that any or all of them are providing recreational services from all liability for:
– my death;
– any physical or mental injury (including the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of such an injury);
– the contraction, aggravation or acceleration of a disease;
– the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition, circumstance, occurrence, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs:
– that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to me or the community; or
-that may result in harm or disadvantage to me or the community,
– howsoever arising from my participation in or attendance at DAD events to indemnify and hold harmless and keep indemnified DAD and any entities to the maximum extent permitted by law in respect of any Claim by any person;
– to be bound to the rules, regulations and policies of DAD and any entities; and
– to attend at or participate in the DAD events at my own risk.
I understand that:
– nothing in this document excludes, restricts or modifies any rights that I may have as a result of significant personal injury that is caused by the reckless conduct of DAD and any entities as the supplier of the event;
– nothing in this document prevents the DAD or the entities from relying on any laws (including statute and common law) that limit or preclude their liability;
– nothing in this document excludes any term or guarantee which under statute cannot be excluded; however the liability of DAD and the entities is limited to the minimum liability allowable by law;
– nothing in this document precludes me from making a claim under a DAD insurance policy where I am expressly entitled to make a claim under that insurance policy; and
– DAD has arranged some limited public liability insurance coverage.

– I acknowledge and accept that the insurance taken out by DAD is for public liability purposes and may not provide me with indemnity for loss, damage or injury that I may suffer during my participation in any DAD event, and that I may have to pay the excess if a claim is made under an insurance policy on my behalf. I agree that my own insurance arrangements are ultimately my responsibility and I will arrange any additional coverage at my expense after taking into account the DAD insurance arrangements, this document and my own circumstances.
