We support Fatality Free Friday.

Road safety is a complex issue but if drivers consciously think about road safety and safe driving for just one Friday in the year, that day’s toll – statistically about 5.3* deaths – could be reduced to zero.

That’s the aim of this campaign. Not a single road death in Australia for just one day. Just one Fatality Free Friday, 26 May.

If drivers actively concentrate on road safety and safe driving for just one day in the year, they’ll drive safer for the next few days too and, over time, change their outlook completely, consciously thinking about safety each and every day they get behind the wheel..

In the 12 months to February 2017, 172 pedestrians were killed in road incidents.

Primary schools are doing their bit by sending their students to class with 40km/h speed signs stuck to their backpacks to improve road safety. Read more about that here.

Take the pledge here.

  • drives me insane watching so many truck drivers, mothers driving cars with infants in them and police men (yes you read that right) – using their mobile phones whilst driving a moving vehicle – if you have to communicate while your driving at least install hands free systems so you can actually drive your car with two hands and try to be just that bit more safer for me and my children’s sake

  • A great idea to reduce deaths on the road.

  • If it reduces road deaths, great idea. But it seems trivial aiming for just one day of no fatalities

  • This is bull. Drivers should be alert at all times. Not just one day of the year. It should be harder to get a licence perhaps. Or provisional for longer.

  • Is a great theory…
