Blue Mountains City Council is proud to continue its commitment to road safety by once again supporting National Road Safety Week, which runs from 15 – 22 November.

This year the theme of “Drive So Others Survive” is being used to promote the need for safer driving on our roads and to raise awareness of the terrible toll that unsafe driving can take on peoples’ lives.

The campaign is an initiative of Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) which was established by Mr Peter Frazer after his daughter, Sarah was killed in a road crash on the Hume Highway in February 2012.

Mayor Mark Greenhill said: “We all have a role to play in keeping our kids and other vulnerable members of our community safe on the roads by slowing down, removing distractions and adhering to the road rules.”

On Sunday, November 15 the National Road Safety Week campaign is asking people to pause at 12pm to remember the 1200 people who died on our roads last year. 

All Australians are also encouraged to participate in this year’s events by displaying a yellow ribbon on their car, motorbike or bicycle, as a symbol of commitment to safer driving and to reflect on the impact of road tragedy.

Yellow ribbons and other Yellow Ribbon National Road Safety Week items are available by donation at Council’s customer service counters in Katoomba and Springwood, and online at www.sarahgroup.org.

You can further support the cause by taking the Road Safety pledge.
