Why safe people matter
Road safety is a shared responsibility. Everyone can play an important role in helping reduce road trauma, because even though we're vulnerable, death shouldn't be viewed as an inevitable consequence of having a road system in place.
We can all work together to help Victoria move Towards Zero deaths and serious injuries by:
- Abiding by road safety legislation, such as driving at safe and legal speeds, not drinking then driving, avoiding driving while drowsy and minimising distractions such as mobile phone conversations. These rules are in place to ensure everyone can have a safe journey.
- Buying the safest vehicle we can afford.
- Helping promote the Towards Zero message by being role models to our children and community.
