Help us Shine a Light on Road Safety in 2017

Injury Matters | March 22, 2017

The Shine a Light on Road Safety campaign for 2017 will coincide with the Fourth United Nations Global Road Safety Week to be held from the 8-14 May 2017.

The campaign aims to raise awareness, to stop deaths and injuries on our roads and to help raise funds to support those impacted by road trauma: #shinealightonroadsafety


There are a number of different ways you can help support the campaign in 2017

  1. Ask all road users to turn on their headlights on Friday 12 May as a simple, free and highly visible gesture, to remember those impacted by road trauma and show your commitment to road safety
  2. Look out for and share your pictures of the Illuminations in yellow of key icons throughout the city from Monday 8 to Sunday 14 May

We all use our roads to move around and connect with other people. Let’s work as a community to keep everyone safe. Together we can all shine a very bright light on road safety during this week and show how important it is to us as individuals as a community as organisations and across all levels of government.

The campaign is supported by key road safety agencies including WA Police and the WA Road Safety Commission
