Road Ribbon for Road Safety® 2015 campaign

On Sunday, 15 November the Road Ribbon for Road Safety® campaign commences, coinciding with the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

This is a community-based campaign aligned to Towards Zero, WA’s Road Safety Strategy 2008 – 2020 and urges people to take care on the roads during the festive season.
 
The Road Ribbon for Road Safety® campaign asks Local Governments, RoadWise Committees, the community road safety network and individuals to directly contribute to raising awareness and the importance of road safety by wearing a free road ribbon, email the e-road ribbon and spreading the campaign messages to friends, family and colleagues.
 
WALGA’s RoadWise Program is encouraging everyone to participate in this road safety initiative. It can be as easy as wearing a road ribbon, hosting a Road Ribbon for Road Safety® event, erecting a road safety display or by making a conscious effort to be a safe road user.
 
Make a conscious effort to be a safe road user by:

  • Turning off your mobile phone before driving
  • Adapting your speed to the weather, light, traffic and road conditions
  • Ensuring you are restrained when travelling in a vehicle
  • Taking a break, having a rest or if possible swapping drivers if feeling fatigued
  • Arranging a skipper, organising public transport or staying overnight if drinking.
