National Road Safety Week 2023


National Road Safety Week(External link) (NRSW) is an initiative from the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group, partnering road safety organisations and government to highlight the impact of road trauma and ways to reduce it. Every year, more than 1200 people are killed and 44,000 seriously injured on Australian roads. National Road Safety Week is a time for us to remember those people who have experienced trauma on our roads. We urge communities to come together and make their pledge to ensure the roads are safe for everyone. To drive so others survive.

  •   Road trauma is the second leading cause of death and serious injury of Australian young people aged between 15 and 25. To change these tragic statistics, we need young people to lead and advocate for road safety among their peers. 

      Aligned with the Australian Curriculum, the ‘Road Safety Starts with Me’ event takes a fresh approach to road safety education and is available free of charge to all participants. 

      The full-day Summit aims to lead year 10 to 12 students on a learning journey, developing road safety awareness and skills across a range of scenarios. You can expect engaging keynote speeches aimed at a teenage audience, including road safety speakers directly impacted by road trauma, interactive road safety activities and critical learning outcomes dedicated to improved road safety behaviours. 

      We invite your school to be a part of this lifesaving event that includes young people in decision making and offers leadership opportunities. 

      Please include the ‘Road Safety Starts with Me’ Youth Summit event in your list of school excursions next year, and save the date for 16 May 2023. To reduce the risk of missing out, express your interest on behalf of your students today!
