The summer holiday period is one of the busiest times of the year on the road. Each Christmas the NHVR publishes a range of tips for all motorists to share as a reminder to stay safe on the roads. They can be found here

Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack, Assistant Minister for Road Safety Scott Buchholz and Queensland Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey today launched the Australian Road Safety Foundation’s (ARSF) Christmas Road Safety Campaign.

The official road safety Christmas period runs for 12 days from 23 December.
