Queensland Road Safety Week
27-31 August 2018

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

'Speaking up for road safety - road rules refresh' is the focus and we're encouraging the whole community to have their say and refresh their road rules knowledge. Throughout the week, we're highlighting different road user groups including motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, heavy vehicle drivers and motorcyclists.

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, test your road rules knowledge, or make a pledge to improve just one thing to be safer on the road.

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 2018 Road Safety Week an important event in your community’s calendar.
