Shine a Light on Road Safety

Slater and Gordon Lawyers are proud to partner with Road Trauma Support Services on the 2017 Shine a Light on Road Safety campaign to raise awareness of the impact of road trauma on individuals and our community.

Coinciding with the Fourth United Nations Global Road Safety Week held 8-14 May, the Shine a Light on Road Safety campaign is a community awareness campaign to stop deaths and injuries on our roads and to raise funds to support those impacted by road trauma.

In Victoria in 2017 we have sadly already lost 89* lives on our roads

Every year over 6000 Victorians are killed or seriously injured on our roads

As an organisation that specialises in providing legal support to those impacted by road trauma, we see all too often the lasting impact this can have on people’s lives and are passionate advocates for safer road conditions for all Australians, as well as ensuring those impacted receive the support they need.

In Victoria in 2017 we have sadly already lost 89* lives on our roads.

Whilst this is 9 fewer than the same time last year, it is still 89 lives too many and represents 89 families and communities changed forever.

In recognition of the Shine a Light on Road Safety campaign we took a look at the impact of road trauma through unique perspectives, all with a shared wish to see a future free from road trauma.

The Shine a Light on Road Safety campaign also included the following events:

Community Walk – Albert Park Lake VIC, Sunday 7th May

Key icon illuminations – During the week key icons across Australia have been illuminated in yellow including the Melbourne Arts Centre Spire, Ballarat Town Hall, Bolte Bridge, Box Hill Town Halll, Exhibition Buildings, Frankston Arts Centre, Habitat Filter, Melbourne Star, Melbourne Town Hall, State Library and Victorian Parliament.

Monday 8th – Sunday 14th May

Turn on your headlights – Motorists around Australia turning on their headlights to demonstrate their commitment to road safety.

Friday 12th May

We are proud to partner with Road Trauma Support Services who provide such an invaluable service to all those impacted by road trauma and bring greater awareness to this important issue whilst we all strive for a future free from road trauma.
