Queensland Road Safety Week
21–25 August 2017
Queensland Road Safety Week 2017 was a chance for all Queenslanders to be involved in making our roads safer. Thanks to everyone who got involved by either hosting or attending an event.
“Speaking up for road safety” was the focus, and it was great to see the community getting involved and having their say.
Communities, schools, sporting groups and workplaces were encouraged to support the Week by hosting local events and sharing road safety information among staff, students, colleagues, family and friends.
There were almost 150 registered Road Safety Week events held during the Week. On top of that, the community was encouraged to share their stories and road safety tips or make a road safety pledge on the Join the Drive Facebook page, and talk to their family and friends about staying safe.
Each day of the Week focused 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.
