Towards Zero Zone, AFL Live Site

Towards Zero Zone, AFL Live SiteSeptember 27 - 30th, 2017 Yarra Park

Join us at the Towards Zero Zone at the 2017 AFL Grand Final Live site for activities and giveaways.

We're a part of the action because football is an important way for us to engage with the community on how we have a shared responsibility in working Towards Zero road deaths and serious injuries.

The Towards Zero Zone focuses on separating drinking and driving. Alcohol is a major factor in road deaths in Victoria.  Driving while under the influence of alcohol affects perception, vision, concentration, reaction time and causes drowsiness. All of which increase the chances of having an accident.

Towards Zero Zone Activities

  • Pavagen Game: Using kinetic energy, score goals for this year's grand finalists, with hourly top goal scorers taking home fuel vouchers.  If you would prefer to be on the sidelines and support your team, you can relax in the lounge area and watch competitors go head-to-head.  The ultimate winner will be taking home a 2018 footy weekend in Melbourne including; accommodation, dinner for 2 and football tickets.  Pop in to find out more.
