Queensland Road Safety Week
21–25 August 2017

Queensland Road Safety Week is a chance for all Queenslanders to be involved in making our roads safer.

‘Speaking up for road safety’ is the focus and we’re encouraging the whole community to have their say.

Communities, schools, sporting groups and workplaces are encouraged to support the Week through hosting local events or sharing road safety information among staff, students, colleagues, family and friends.

You can share a personal story, suggest a road safety tip, talk to your kids, family and friends about staying safe, or make a pledge to improve just one thing to be safer on the road.

Each day of the Week will focus on different road safety issues, kicking off with speed on Monday, drink and drug driving on Tuesday, distractions, seatbelts and child restraints on Wednesday, sharing the road on Thursday and fatigue on Friday.

Queensland Road Safety Week is also about challenging the status quo. Let’s stop accepting death and serious injury as just ‘part and parcel’ of using our roads. Speak up. Be heard. Make Queensland’s 2017 Road Safety Week an important event in your community’s calendar.
