SHB Turns Yellow

On Sunday 29 April, New South Wales will mark the start of 2018 Yellow Ribbon National Road Safety Week by turning Sydney Harbour yellow after sunset with both the Bridge and Manly Fast Ferries shining yellow in remembrance of all the lives lost and damaged in road trauma across NSW and the country.

A new theme will be observed daily during National Road Safety Week:

  • Monday 30 April: Remember the 1200 (road deaths)
  • Tuesday 1 May: Protecting those who rescue us (Emergency Services & Roadside Assist)
  • Wednesday 2 May: Protecting those who keep us safe (Traffic Controllers & road workers)
  • Thursday 3 May: Protecting every life (pedestrians: children, seniors, people with disabilities)
  • Friday 4 May: Shine a light on road safety (Headlights)
  • Saturday 5 May: Yellow ride – cyclists and motorcyclists
  • Sunday 6 May: Regional and remote road users

To get involved people are invited to:

  • Follow the rules of the road and don’t get distracted when in your vehicle
  • Take a pledge to drive so others survive
  • Display a yellow ribbon on your car, motorbike, truck or bicycle
  • Share support on social media using the #nrsw or #drivesos hashtags
