Queensland Road Safety Week will run between August 21-25 it is a chance for all Queenslanders to get involved in making our roads safer.
‘Speaking up for road safety’ is the focus and police are encouraging the whole community to have their say on road safety.
Communities, schools and workplaces are being asked to support the week by hosting local events or sharing road safety information among staff, students, colleagues, family and friends.
You can share a personal story, suggest a road safety tip, talk to your kids, family and friends about staying safe, or make a pledge to improve a single road behaviour using the hashtag #RoadSafetyWeek.
