Safe driving tips
National Road Safety Week
National Road Safety Week reminds drivers that as a road user, you can make a difference and help make our roads safe and drive so that others survive.
Every year, more than 35,000 people are seriously injured and more than 1200 lives are lost on Australian roads.
Whether you are travelling for work, visiting friends, picking up the kids or going on holiday you can help make our roads safe by driving safely.
Driving safely means:
- Moving over and slowing down when you see flashing lights or when passing emergency services, roadside assist and roadside workers.
- Protecting every life along the road including children, seniors and people with disabilities.
- Sharing the road and giving space to cyclists and motorcyclists.
- Removing distractions and never using a mobile phone while behind the wheel.
- Not putting other people at risk by speeding, driving while tired or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Driving so that you and others survive.
