This year's National Road Safety Week theme is an important community reminder, proudly supported by RAC to help prevent deaths and serious injuries on our roads.

Everyone has a right to get home safe

In 2021 Western Australia recorded its worst road toll in five years. Speed, distraction, fatigue and driving under the influence continue to occur on our roads, causing major crashes, serious injuries and loss of lives.

RAC, together with their partners, supports National Road safety Week. Together we remember the loved ones lost on our roads. Together we pledge to #DriveSoOthersSurvive. And you can too.

How we're supporting

Our Vision 2030 is for a safer, sustainable and connected future for Western Australians.

For a safer WA, think safer roads, vehicles and people. We want to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured on WA roads.

That's why we've partnered with the Road Safety Commission in funding a number community grants to promote important road safety initiatives to WA metro and regional communities.

Take a look at some of the projects we've funded
