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.
