National Road Safety Week

On average over the past 10 years 48 people are killed on Territory roads each year and around 542 seriously injured.


The Yellow Ribbon Road Safety Week aims to:

  • raise awareness of the number of people that are killed or injured in road crashes, and
  • provide an opportunity for you or your organisation to actively commit to safeguarding the lives and health of all road users, including pedestrians.

The Campaign is coordinated by Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Inc., a not for profit incorporated association.


Key message

The Campaign’s key message of Drive So Others Survive (Drive SOS!) invites road users to:

  • share the road responsibly
  • protect vulnerable road users (particularly those who work on roads to assist and protect us); and
  • honour those who have been killed or injured on the road network.

How you can get involved

You can take the pledge to be part of the 2016 Drive SOS! Yellow Ribbon Campaign by doing any of the following activities:

  • tie a yellow ribbon to your vehicle
