Communities – take action for safer roads

Are you a community campaigner or club or society leader? Then register now to take part in Road Safety Week!

Road safety is a community issue. Everyone has the right to make safe and healthy journeys where they live but traffic speed and a lack of safe places to walk and cycle affect many communities across NZ.

Road Safety Week is the ideal time to get together with people in your community and shout out for safer roads where you live and fundraise to support people affected by road crashes. 




A note on COVID-19: Whilst COVID-19 continues to have an impact on organisations and communities at times, we are ensuring that a number of Road Safety Week activity suggestions can be adapted to run in various settings, whether in a community venue, at home or via distance/online meetings/events.
