National Road Safety Week

May 1st, 2018

National Road Safety Week is an annual initiative from the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group, partnering road safety organisations and both Federal and State Government. This year the week runs from 30 April to 6 May 2018 and highlights the impact of road trauma and ways to reduce it.

Over the week, national and State icons will turn yellow. Emergency vehicles, fleet trucks, cars, motorbikes and bicycles will display yellow ribbons to honour those we have lost and demonstrate the pledge to drive safely.

During the week iconic Queensland landmarks will be lit yellow for National Road Safety Week:
