Road Safety Week
Every year, around 300 people are seriously injured or killed on Tasmania’s roads. To reverse this impact we all need to improve our driving behaviours.
During National Road Safety Week in May 2022 and all throughout the year, you'll see us continue to share the national road safety message in our local Tasmanian community.
We'll share road safety education through safe driver programs at schools and seniors groups. You'll see us in the news calling on all levels of government to prioritise road safety initiatives. Our team members will share what they've learnt from their near miss crash experiences. We'll light up our buildings in yellow to promote widespread road safety awareness. We'll share the road with others so we can all get home safely.
Sunday 15 May 2022: Remember the 1200 lives lost on our roads.
Monday 16 May 2022: Take the pledge to drive so others survive.
Tuesday 17 May 2022: Travel safe so we can all live without injury and trauma.
Wednesday 18 May 2022: Slow down to protect those who protect and assist us.
Thursday 19 May 2022: Think about safety when choosing a car.
Friday 20 May 2022: Look out for pedestrians when driving.
Saturday 21 May 2022: Share the road safely and give other road users space.
Sunday 22 May 2022: Drive to the conditions on country roads.
We're deeply committed to changing driver behaviour on the road, including our own driving habits. Hear about our near miss experiences and what impact this has had on our team.
