SARAH is about protecting Vulnerable Road Users ..
Cyclists are dying in increasing numbers. Want to help protect their lives???…
Is it OK to pass an Ambulance stopped at a crash at 200 kph? If you are driving in the Northern Territory, the answer is quite unbelivable!
Only South Australia requires passing drivers to slow down (currently to 40 kph) when approaching emergency service.
Its bad enough that people don’t need to slow down to protect the safety of others but on the Stuart Highway Northern Territory, it will now be OK to pass vulnerable road users and those emergency services, towies and roadside assistance personnel working on the at 200+ kph.

SARAH supports Release of Breakdown Video Advertisement by NSW Centre for Road Safety
The 2013 Yellow Ribbon Road Safety Week national launch showed a number of US and Canadian videos that focused on protecting those who assist and protect on roads and highways. SARAH is very pleased to say that, inspired by those videos, the Transport for NSW’s Centre for Road Safety has subsequently produced its own YouTube clip. Please feel free to share.
