With over 1200 people dying and 44,000 seriously injured on Australian roads every year, changes need to be made.
Take The Pledge For Road Safety
You can take the pledge on the Road Safety Week website.
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.
Our Road Safety Campaign
Tragically, bike riders are over represented in NSW road deaths. This is why Bicycle NSW is joining the call for safer roads.
We recently launched our own road safety campaign, Safety On Spokes, calling on everyone to play their part in making roads safer for all. We even launched the campaign at NSW Parliament to show that politicians are also committed to safer roads across our state as well.
With less people on public transport and more people in cars due to COVID-19, it’s important this year to follow the law and drive to conditions to ensure everyone can get home safe.
“Every life matters and everyone deserves to arrive at their destination safely. Road related deaths are preventable and we all need to play out part in making our roads safer,” said Kim Lavender, Bicycle NSW Communications Manager.
This Road Safety Week, why not share some of the Safety On Spoke resources with your family and friends to help make the road environment safer.
