National Road Safety Week

Keep Your Eyes on the Road

National Road Safety Week, which runs between 8 - 14 May is an initiative of Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH). SARAH was establish by Peter Frazer after his daughter was killed on the Hume Highway near Mittagong in February 2012.

The main activity of National Road Safety Week involves tying a yellow ribbon to your car, bicycle or motorcycle as a symbol of commitment to safer driving and to reflect on the impact of road trauma.

All Australians should reflect on the lives we lose every year and remember that it is unsatisfactory to accept that road deaths are an inevitable part of our road transport system.

All drivers are encourage to set a National Road Safety Week resolution to Drive So Others Survive or Drive SOS which is the slogan for National Road Safety Week.

Most importantly:

  • Obey the speed limit
  • Wear a seatbelt
  • Don't drink or take drugs and drive
  • Keep you hand off mobile phones and keep your eyes on the road

These are simple actions that can have a positive impact towards improving safety and saving lives.

Visit the Keep Your Eyes on the Road website for more information about AMTA's initiative to to encourage safe, responsible and legal mobile phone use while driving.
