Road Safety Starts With Me

It doesn’t matter if you’re driving, riding, walking, or jogging, we all need to think about the role we play in making Tasmanian roads safe.

‘Road Safety Starts With Me’ asks all of us to consider our driving behaviour and the role we play in making our roads safe, and to have those tough conversations with family and friends. Influencing positive road-safety attitudes among our families, colleagues, and peers can never start too young with our children and young adults, through to our peers and older family and friends.

There are some simple things we can all do on the roads to improve road safety including:

  • Showing courtesy on the roads – this can be as simple as waving ‘thank you’ or letting another car in.
  • Using your indicator to let others know your intentions.
  • Leaving a safe distance between yourself and the car in front of you.
  • Concentrating and staying alert when driving.
  • Obeying the road rules, speed limits and driving to the conditions.
