May means road safety

This month we’re asking Queenslanders to make a personal pledge to focus on road safety in the lead up to Fatality Free Friday on Friday 26 May.

Road users around the state will be given an opportunity to make their pledge as part of a regional roadshow, where they can sign an inflatable car and collect a keyring to act as a constant reminder that everyone has a responsibility for road safety.

You can view the schedule regional events, or make your pledge online at

There are also events taking place nationally and internationally to make road safety top of mind this May.

Yellow Ribbon Week ran nationally from 8 May and has been established by Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) to raise awareness of road safety, and support those affected by road tragedy. The event started in 2012 following a tragic crash on the Hume Highway where 23 year old Sarah Frazer and 40 year old Geoffrey Clark were killed attending to a car breakdown.

Internationally, the annual UN Global Road Safety Week is currently in its fourth year and aims to reduce the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.

This years’ event ran in tandem with Yellow Ribbon Week with the theme of speed management.
