Queensland Road Safety Week 2019

Now in its fifth year, Queensland Road Safety Week (QRSW) 2019 was held from 26 to 30 August 2019. QRSW continues to grow each year and more than 500 events were held across the state to encourage local communities to engage with road safety in a variety of ways.

During QRSW 2019 we encouraged Queenslanders to put road safety first – a clear call to all road users to make safety their first and foremost priority every time they use the roads by any mode or means.

Throughout the week, the Department of Transport and Main Roads and Queensland Police Service joined together to put the spotlight on road safety, supported by organisations including the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC), CARRS-Q, RACQ, Queensland Cricket and local groups including PCYC, local councils, schools and many others. Events ranged from bike safety workshops for kids to caravan inspections for grey nomads – and everything in between.

Although QRSW has ended for another year, road safety matters every day and we’ll continue working to encourage all Queenslanders to put road safety first and reduce the trauma caused by crashes on Queensland roads. Queensland Road Safety Week is a Queensland Government initiative, delivered in partnership by the Department of Transport and Main Roads and Queensland Police Service. The Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC), RACQ and the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q) are proud supporters.
