Transport for NSW
Connecting with Aboriginal communities about road safety
Aboriginal people are twice as likely to be killed or injured in a crash compared with non-Aboriginal people. This is why Transport for NSW works directly with Aboriginal communities across the State though the Aboriginal road safety program to promote safe road user behaviour and help reduce crashes.
Through practical safety programs, we improve road safety for Aboriginal people. We also support the Driver Licensing Access Program.
Through the NITV and Imparja television networks, Aboriginal community radio stations and newspapers such as the Koori Mail, we deliver messages to connect with Aboriginal communities. Our overall safety message, ‘Bring the Mob Home Safely’, is linked to many of our campaigns. We also deliver road safety initiatives, including our new Safety Town online resource for schools and families, the Child Car Seats website, and the Speed Advisor app to help drivers stick to the speed limit.
We also promote safety at Aboriginal events across NSW and help deliver safer roads for Aboriginal communities. We have supported community events such as Yabun, Tour da Country, NAIDOC Week celebrations and the NSW Aboriginal Rugby League Knockout. At these events we promote road safety, driver licensing and Aboriginal employment opportunities.
