Thank you to everyone who took part in Road Safety Week 2016! Details of the 2017 week will be released shortly.

Road Safety Week is a community event held annually in May, promoted by Brake but run by you. It's your opportunity to get great publicity and attention for a road safety campaign run by you in your town, company, club, school or kindy. Whoever you are, wherever you live, help raise awareness of the terrible carnage on NZ roads by getting involved in Road Safety Week. Use the links below to sign up, find out more, and get planning!

NZ RSW Hero HeaderBe a #roadsafetyhero

For Road Safety Week 2016 we called on all road users, but particularly drivers, to be a 'road safety hero'. We can all be road safety heroes and play a part in making our roads safer. We focused on the golden rules for safe driving as outlined in the Brake Pledge. We also used #roadsafetyhero on our Twitter and Facebook.

Tell us about a local #roadsafetyhero! Whether they're already a #roadsafetyhero or doing something in Road Safety Week we want to hear about people who are campaigning, raising awareness or doing other activities to support road safety. Tell us more about them.

Show you're a #roadsafetyhero with our signboard. A really easy way to show your support for Road Safety Week - print off this year's #roadsafetyhero signboard, write your road safety message on it, take a selfie, post it on social media and tag us in it on Facebook or Twitter.
