National Road Safety Week 2023

What is National Road Safety Week?

National Road Safety Week (NRSW) is an annual initiative from the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group. It’s a partnership between road safety organisations and government to highlight the impact of road trauma and how, by working together, we can save lives and prevent serious injuries on our roads

Every year, more than 1200 people are killed and 44,000 seriously injured on Australian roads. National Road Safety Week is a time for us to remember those people who have experienced trauma on our roads.

Pledge 2

Pledge to drive so others survive!

We encourage everyone in the community to come together and make the pledge to ensure the roads are safe for everyone. To drive so others survive.
