National Road Safety Week
Every year, around 300 people are seriously injured or killed on Tasmania’s roads. This has to change.
One way we’re trying to reduce this tragic statistic is through National Road Safety Week this year.
From 15-22 November, we'll be running a series of school activities, holding media events and sharing valuable information on social media with you.
This is all in the name of educating Tasmanians about the importance of being a safe driver, obeying the road rules and sharing the road with others.
This year’s daily focuses are:
Sunday 15: World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
Monday 16: Take the pledge, lead the way: drive so others survive.
Tuesday 17: Support your employees to drive so they and others survive.
Wednesday 18: Slow Down Move Over for emergency services and roadside assistance workers.
Thursday 19: Vulnerable road users – pedestrians, children, seniors and people with a disability.
Friday 20: Regional and remote road users.
Saturday 21: Share the road with cyclists and motorcyclists.
Keep an eye out on our social media pages, our links are below, and your daily news to see what we’re up to.
Road Safety Week is the initiative of Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH). SARAH is a not-for-profit incorporated association founded by Peter Frazer after the death of his 23-year-old daughter, Sarah, on the Hume Highway in February 2012.
