Road safety week

We’ve created a series of community events and activities from Monday 20 May to Sunday 26 May 2024 to help promote road safety in the capital.

We’re teaming up with Brake NZ as part of Road Safety Week 2024.

This year the theme is being a Road Safety Hero, and we want you to nominate someone who goes above and beyond to promote road safety in your community.

To nominate yourself or someone else, enter via the Yellow Ribbon website.
