About Queensland Road Safety Week

Queensland Road Safety Week is an opportunity for all Queenslanders to be directly involved in making our roads safer for everyone.

‘Speaking up for road safety’ is the focus of this inaugural Queensland-wide event; and we’re encouraging the whole community to have their say on road safety.

You can share a personal story, suggest a road safety tip, talk to your kids, family and friends about staying safe, or make a pledge to improve a single road behaviour.

Queensland Road Safety Week is also about encouraging all Queenslanders to challenge the status quo. Let’s stop accepting death and serious injury as just ‘part and parcel’ of using our roads.


Each day of the week will focus on a different road safety behaviour kicking off with ‘distractions’ on Monday, ‘speed’ on Tuesday, ‘fatigue and restraints’ on Wednesday, ‘sharing the road’ on Thursday, and ‘drink and drug driving’ on Friday.

Speak up. Be heard. Make Queensland’s first statewide Road Safety Week an important event in your community’s calendar.

Visit jointhedrive.qld.gov.au/road-safety-week  for event information and to find out how you can get involved.

Queensland Road Safety Week is a joint initiative of the Queensland Police Service and the Department of Transport and Main Roads. RACQ, the Motor Accident Insurance Commission, and the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q), are proud supporters of the event.
