RURAL ROAD SAFETY WEEK
8th – 12th OCTOBER 2018
Rural Road Safety Week is a national awareness campaign targeting regional and rural road safety.
It’s a chance for all of us to be involved in making the roads safer. There are many ways to get involved and Choose Road Safety, from changing an in-car behaviour to hosting an event in your local community.
We encourage local road safety advocates, communities, schools, sporting groups and workplaces to support the week through hosting local events or sharing road safety information among staff, students, colleagues, family and friends. Make a pledge to #ChooseRoadSafey.
- Rural road crashes account for 65% of the Australian road toll
