Road safety is a shared responsibility and this year during National Road Safety Week (16-23 May 2021), Transport for NSW is asking everyone to get involved, spread the word and consider what action they can take.
National Road Safety Week highlights the impact of road trauma, honours those we have lost to road crashes and pledges to make the roads safer for everyone.
Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown OAM said this campaign reminds us just how important it is to be safe on our roads, protect those around us and return ourselves safely to our loved ones.
“It’s scary to think that in addition to lives lost, crashes on NSW roads leave more than 10,000 people with serious injuries every year*” Cr McKeown said.
“There are many different ways you can get involved, starting with taking the pledge to lead the way and drive so others survive. By taking the pledge you are making a commitment to take responsibility on the road to protect every life, every time you drive.”
So get involved and show your support for safer roads.
