Road Safety Week

Road Safety Week is held in the first week of May every year to educate and highlight the importance of road safety.

​RACT will join forces with the Road Safety Advisory Council and Tasmania Police from Monday 6 May - Sunday 12 May to conduct various activities around the state. Focusing on the "Fatal Five", RACT will be holding workshops for primary school, high school and colleges to help educate students and get them to identify and set challenges for all Tasmanians to play a part in making our roads safer.

Prominent buildings, such as Hobart and Launceston Town Halls, Leven Bridge in Ulverstone and the Burnie Makers Centre, will be illuminated in yellow as an eye-catching road safety reminder.
