Road Safety Week 2020
Road Safety Week is held throughout Australia in the first week of May. It highlights the need to drive so others survive and for everyone to use the roads safely. The annual Tasmanian road toll is an average of 36. About 270 people are seriously injured. That number of deaths and injuries in the same place at the same time would cause a public outcry. But we accept the toll of road crash casualties. We shouldn’t, because crashes are preventable.
Activities in Tasmania planned for the Week include a video competition.
First prize is $5000; second $3000 and third is five free driving lessons and 12 months’ RACT Roadside membership.
The competition is open to Tasmanians aged between 16 and 19.There’s more information and entry form in the terms and conditions.
