Qld Road Safety Week - 21-25 August 2017
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and the Queensland Police Service (QPS) Road Policing Command have joined together for the third year to run Queensland Road Safety Week (QRSW) which runs from 21-25 August 2017.The Week is a chance for all Queenslanders to be involved in making our roads safer.
‘Speaking up for road safety’ continues to be the QRSW theme and TMR/QPS seek your company's support in 2017.
During Queensland Road Safety Week, each day will focus on a different road user behaviour:
Maroussia encourages your company to host a QRSW morning tea/event and demonstrate your support by sharing Join the Drive Facebook social media posts, as well as post your own social media using sample posts and images https://s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/jointhedrive.qld.gov.au/downloads/resources/documents/road-safety-week/rsw-social-media-event-toolkit-2017.pdf).

If your company is considering planning any events, please register them on the QRSW event calendar - events can be selected as “private event” (so they don’t appear on the calendar).
