Tasman Bridge lit up yellow for NRSW

Road Safety Week

Every year, around 300 people are seriously injured or killed on Tasmania’s roads. To reverse this impact, we all need to improve our driving behaviours.

Driving change in Tasmania

This year, Tasmania takes the spotlight as the host of National Road Safety Week (NRSW), emphasising our collective mission towards zero fatalities or serious injuries on our roads. 

From Sunday 5 May until Sunday 12 May 2024, we’ll be marking the week with series of community events and activities across the state to educate and foster collaboration in preventing road-related tragedies. Iconic Tasmanian landmarks including the Tasman Bridge, MyState Bank Arena, and Wrest Point Tower will illuminate in yellow nightly to honour the lives affected by road trauma. 

During this week, we're not just raising awareness, but calling for action. Our objective? To foster a culture of safe driving, and for this, we need your help.

How you can get involved

Join us in making a difference, take the road safety pledge, attend our educational sessions, craft your own yellow ribbon, and more, as we work together to save lives and create safer roads for all.
