The Kiama lighthouse will once again join other iconic Australian landmarks in being bathed in yellow for National Road Safety Week 2021 (16 to 23 May).
The lighthouse is being lit up from 8pm to Midnight to honour the memory of the 1,200 people who die on Australia’s roads each year.
More than 290 people have been killed on NSW roads in the last 12 months.
Speeding, alcohol, drugs and fatigue remain the biggest killers on our roads.
This Road Safety Week we can all take the online pledge to not drive distracted, not speed and to never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
You can take the online pledge to drive safely via the National Road Safety Week website: www.roadsafetyweek.com.au
Council is holding a road safety stall at the Kiama Farmers’ Market on Wednesday (19 May), where you can also make your pledge and get your yellow ribbon to show your support for road safety.
