Road Safety Week for ev­ery­one

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

BUND­ABERG and Bur­nett res­i­dents are be­ing urged to keep the con­ver­sa­tion go­ing about road safety dur­ing Queens­land Road Safety Week.

Mem­ber for Bur­nett Stephen Ben­nett said the statewide cam­paign runs from Au­gust 22-28 and is an op­por­tu­nity for all driv­ers to be di­rectly in­volved in mak­ing our roads safer for ev­ery­one.

Mr Ben­nett said this year’s theme, “Speak­ing up for road safety”, en­cour­ages all Queens­lan­ders to think about their driv­ing and how they can help to keep ev­ery­one safe on the road.

“Road safety is ev­ery­one’s re­spon­si­bil­ity and this week gives us an op­por­tu­nity to re­flect and have a con­ver­sa­tion with our friends and fam­i­lies to ob­serve the fa­tal five and drive safely,” Mr Ben­nett said.

“We all play a valu­able role in keep­ing our roads safe, we can re­duce the bur­den of road trauma on our com­mu­ni­ties.”
