National Road Safety Week
National Road Safety Week (NRSW) is an annual initiative created by the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group and supported by the Road Safety Commission in Western Australia.
From 16th - 23rd May 2021, Western Australians are encouraged to 'Shine a Light' on road safety through NRSW Road Safety Community Grants, memorials and morning teas, the lighting of WA buildings and icons in yellow lights, or just by wearing a yellow ribbon to honour those we have lost and pledging to make the roads safer for everyone.
