This National Road Safety Week, we encourage you to slow down behind the wheel and help save lives on our roads.

Change your speed. Change your outcome.

To signify National Road Safety Week, we created the Road of Regret representing the heartbreaking outcomes of three car crashes to drive home the very real consequences of speeding.

The exhibition shows three potential aftermaths of a two-car crash – in the first, a motorist is travelling at the 50km/h speed limit and t-bones another car, resulting in minor injuries. In the second scenario, the motorist is travelling 10km/h over the limit, and the other driver suffers severe injuries. In the third, the motorist is speeding by 20km/h and the other driver does not survive.

RAC’s Road of Regret will be on display at Lakeside Joondalup from 5 - 8 May and Mandurah Forum from 9 - 12 May.

For National Road Safety Week 2024, representatives of road crash rescue in WA stepped forward with a simple message for WA drivers – “Do it for us”. Do what exactly? Change your driving behaviours to avoid a crash.

Hear from RAC Rescue Pilot Ron van Heerden as he shares the impact of road trauma on our first responders.

RAC supports National Road Safety Week and we encourage you to slow down and help save lives on our roads. Together we pledge to #DriveSoOthersSurvive and you can too.

National Road Safety Week is an annual initiative established by the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group, partnering road safety organisations and Government. The week highlights the impact of road trauma and ways to reduce it.

For more than 115 years, RAC has been giving back to WA. We're committed to championing change that will lead to a safer, sustainable and connected future for Western Australians. We want to reduce the rate of people killed and seriously injured on our roads and to do so, our top priorities for a safer WA are safer speeds limits, regional road safety upgrades and safer intersections. National Road Safety Week gives us the opportunity to raise awareness about road safety in WA and help work towards achieving a safer WA for all.
