21 August, 2015 –
Queensland Road Safety Week comes to an end today (21 August).
Every day, road crashes devastate the lives of Queenslanders and take an enormous toll on families and communities. Queensland Road Safety Week provides an opportunity to raise this critical public health issue and encourage the community to do what they can to keep themselves and others safe on the roads.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads has identified five key risks to Queenslanders on the roads; distractions, speed, fatigue and restraints, drink and drug driving. And has compiled a number of fact sheets.
These fact sheets can make for sober reading but do highlight how many risks can be reduced by changing our behaviour on the roads.
