Let’s all be ‘best on road’ this Road Safety Awareness Week (May 16 – 23) and remind everyone of the importance of good road safety.
That’s because every year, more than 1,200 people are killed and 44,000 seriously injured on Aussie roads. Many sporting clubs throughout the country have been impacted by this devasting statistic, highlighting why it’s essential for us to play our part and take road safety seriously.
MAKE A PLEDGE NOW
I pledge to drive as if my loved ones are on the road ahead.
I will remove all distractions and never use my mobile phone while driving.
I will not put other people at risk by speeding, driving while tired or under the influence of alcohol/drugs.
I will protect all vulnerable road users, especially those whose job places them in harm’s way, by slowing down and giving them the space they need to be safe.
