Road Safety Week 6 - 12 May 2019

Road Safety Week 2018 - Belt on, Phone off - Make it a habit
RSW 2018 took place 7 - 13 May. Thanks to everyone who took part! We called on drivers to save lives by not using their phone at the wheel, and called on everyone to protect themselves by always wearing a seatbelt. Thanks to sponsorship from QBE Insurance and NZ Transport Agency we provided free resources to organisations taking part, including two online interactive games. Key messages were also circulated on social media through our Twitter and Facebook pages.
