National Road Safety Week 2018

Each year, approximately 1200 people are killed and more than 30,000 are injured on Australian roads.

For the fifth year running, National Road Safety Week presents you with an opportunity to help spread the word about road safety, and build awareness among friends, family, and the community.

Yellow Ribbon National Road Safety Week is an initiative of Safer Australian Roads and Highways (or SARAH), a not-for-profit organisation that aims to improve Australian road safety by raising our awareness and asking us to Drive So Others Survive (or #DriveSOS).

Queensland landmarks (including Brisbane’s Story Bridge, the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges, and Toowoomba’s Victoria Street Bridge) will be lit yellow, joining iconic landmarks across the country turning yellow to promote road safety as part of Yellow Ribbon Week.

Lighting these landmarks yellow symbolises our commitment to protecting those who are vulnerable on our roads and remembering those that have been injured or killed in road crashes.

The Queensland Government is firmly committed to reducing the number of people killed and seriously injured on our roads. Every serious road crash has ongoing and devastating effects for families and communities.

You can get involved by:

  • following the road rules including not getting distracted when in your vehicle
  • taking a pledge to drive so others survive
  • displaying a yellow ribbon on your car, motorbike, truck or bicycle
  • sharing your support on social media using the #nrsw or #drivesos hashtags
  • talking to your family, friends and colleagues about your intention to drive safely and why.
