2016 #NRSW - Northern Territory


#DriveSOS

 

SARAH was very proud of the work done to promote Yellow Ribbon Road Safety in the Territory.


Indeed, 2016 National Road Safety Week was a major success primarily due to the support of the Northern Territory Government and the dedication and commitment of the Chief Executive and the officers of the Department of Transport.

Here is just a few images and words to give you a feel for what they achieved.


 

The Minister for Infrastructure Hon Peter Chandler MLA launched Road Safety Week on Friday 29 April in the Darwin Mall under a massive raintree. The tree displayed 49 yellow ribbons symbolising the 49 lives lost last year on our roads. Images below show the tree illuminated in yellow at night. Members of the public were invited to write messages on yellow ribbons that were also hung in the tree.

The Chief Executive and officers from the Department of Transport were a ‘driving force’ behind the success of this event! The Week was promoted to all Government agencies and major corporates to get on board and show their support.



Free yellow lapel ribbons and vehicle decal ribbons that include a Drive So Other Survive message were provided, along with Yellow Road Safety car airfresher that were distributed at other road safety related events and also during National Youth week events. A novel but fantastic idea was to have NT Police handing out ribbons and airfreshners at Random Breath Test Sites during the week as well as displaying/wearing ribbons.
