Perth has been chosen as the location of the 2018 National Road Safety Week launch, with WA landmarks to glow yellow, in remembrance of the hundreds of lives lost on Australian roads.
 
Yellow Ribbon National Road Safety Week began five years ago as an initiative of Safer Australian Road and Highways (SARAH) President Peter Frazer, who lost his daughter in a road crash in New South Wales in 2012.
 
The key message for this year’s National Road Safety Week, from 29 April to 6 May, is ‘Drive so others survive’.
 
Perth landmarks including Elizabeth Quay, the Bell Tower, Trafalgar Bridge and Council House will glow yellow across the week as a reminder of those people who lost have their lives on our roads, and of the families those people left behind.
 
A new theme will be observed daily during National Road Safety Week:
 
  • Monday 30 April: Remember the 1200 (road deaths)
  • Tuesday 1 May: Protecting those who help us (first responders)
  • Wednesday 2 May: Protecting those who help us (roadside assist)
  • Thursday 3 May: Protecting every life (pedestrians: children, seniors, people with disabilities)
  • Friday 4 May: Shine a light on road safety (Headlights)
  • Saturday 5 May: Yellow ride – cyclists and motorcyclists
  • Sunday 6 May: Regional and remote road users
You can get involved and raise the awareness of road safety during NRSW 2018 by purchasing a yellow ribbon.
