Coinciding with the United Nations Global Road Safety Week and Australia’s Yellow Ribbon National Road Safety Week, QUT’s Centre for Accident Research & Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q) is launching a Queensland-wide initiative “Watch your Pace when Sharing Space” on Friday May 12, 2017.
The CARRS-Q campaign aims to educate people about the vulnerability of pedestrians and cyclists involved in collisions with cars at relatively low speeds.
The Samford event will provide the opportunity to remind the community about sharing the road. There will also be face painting, a sausage sizzle and cupcakes, together with interactive displays by RACQ, Kidsafe, Queensland Ambulance Service and Queensland Police.
A road safety event will be held at Samford Village.
