Since its inception in 2007, ARSF’s Fatality Free Friday campaign has continued to expand its operation and is now recognised as Australia’s largest national community-based road safety program.
ARSF’s Fatality Free Friday initiative is about much more than just a single day – Friday 27 May 2022. It operates on the belief that if we can go one day without a death on the road, we can demonstrate the impact a focus on road safety can have every day of the year.
Road safety is a global issue that ranks as one of the most pressing matters facing society today. The social, economic, and emotional costs are immense, and these figures are poised to increase unless something is done, now.
All road users are encouraged to get involved and to take personal responsibility to help make a significant reduction in road trauma. We are also aiming for a longer-term community change.
This backs up the SWFL messages of last week with Belt Up Round, courtesy of our Community Partner – TRONOX.
99% of road users believe they are safe drivers yet 70% actually break the road laws, with cyclists the worst at 81%, motorcyclists 77% and drivers 76% of the worst offenders. 1127 people lost their lives on roads in Australia in 2021, 166 in Western Australia, so lets make today, Fatality Free Friday so we can all get to the Footy on the Weekend.
