Sunday 15 to Sunday 22 November 2020 is National Road Safety Week, and to promote the event Greater Hume and Lockhart Shire Councils are running competitions asking residents to decorate their front gate, letterbox etc. in yellow, take a photo and send it to their Council to be considered for the top 5 most creative entries and win one of five, $200 gift vouchers.

During National Road Safety Week the iconic HMAS submarine in Holbrook, will be lit up in yellow lights and Lockhart’s renowned metal sculptures will be decorated in big yellow bows supporting the key message, drive so others survive.

Every year, approximately 1200 people are killed and another 44,000 are seriously injured on Australian roads. These numbers are growing every year but are preventable if we choose to Drive So Others Survive!.

National Road Safety Week is an annual initiative from the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group, partnering road safety organisations and Government. The week highlights the impact of road trauma and ways to reduce it.

Competition details and the daily themed National Road Safety Week messages will be shared on Council’s Facebook pages and detailed competition details can be found below.
