RAC has joined forces with the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers to promote road safety
RAC is passionate about sport in WA but we are even more passionate about saving lives on WA roads. We want everyone to get home safely.
The RAC Derby is a great platform to start a conversation with football fans and their families about the deadly impact driver distraction and inattention has on our community.
Distraction is fast becoming a leading cause of deaths and serious injuries on our roads and RAC is calling on Western Australians to focus on what's most important and Look Up when driving.
It takes an average of five seconds to read a text message. At 100km/h, that’s like driving across Optus Stadium blindfolded and using a mobile phone while driving means you are four times more likely to be in a crash.
Tragically using a mobile phone behind the wheel is an act which 80 per cent of WA drivers admit to doing, despite 9 in 10 labeling it as risky.
With support from the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers, the RAC Derby will allow road safety awareness to be taken directly to 120,000 spectators each year.
