Does the use of computer-based simulation activities in the Traffic Safety Education classroom enhance teaching and learning outcomes?  This paper examines the use of a number of CD ROM based resources in the classroom and describes how they may maximize the chances of effective teaching and the learning.  The resources are traffic safety education products.  The outcomes measured are safe road user behaviour and knowledge of risk.  The paper makes some tentative conclusions about the contexts and pedagogy for the most effective use of these CD ROM based products.
