About Queensland Road Safety Week
22–28 August 2016

Road Safety Week was an opportunity for all Queenslanders to get involved in making our roads safer.

'Speaking up for road safety' was the focus and we encouraged the whole community to have their say on road safety.

Communities, schools and workplaces supported the week by hosting local events or sharing road safety information among staff, students, colleagues, family and friends.

Events such as workplace morning teas, office road safety quizzes, Adopt-a-cop presentations and school ‘free dress’ days were held across Queensland throughout the week.

Personal stories and road safety tips were shared throughout the community.

Queensland Road Safety Week was also urged the community to challenge the status quo. They key message was - Let’s stop accepting death and serious injury as just part and parcel of using our roads.

Using #SpeakUpSelfie – Queenslanders from all over the state shared their support via social media resulting in a concentrated focus on prioritising road safety.
