Queensland Road Safety Week 2017

Queensland Road Safety Week will run between August 21-25 and is chance for all Queenslanders to get involved in making our roads safer.

‘Speaking up for road safety’ is the focus and we’re encouraging the whole community to have their say on road safety.

Communities, schools and workplaces are encouraged to support the week by hosting local events or sharing road safety information among staff, students, colleagues, family and friends.

You can share a personal story, suggest a road safety tip, talk to your kids, family and friends about staying safe, or make a pledge to improve a single road behaviour using the hashtag #RoadSafetyWeek.

On each day of Road Safety Week, we will be highlighting a different road safety issue:

Speeding – Monday, August 21
Drink and drug driving – Tuesday, August 22
Distractions, seatbelts and child restraints – Wednesday, August 23
Sharing the road, including bike and pedestrian safety  Thursday, August 24
Fatigue – Friday, August 25
