MAY 25 is an important day. It's Fatality Free Friday - the one day a year which aims to have ZERO deaths on our roads.

Australian Transport Safety Bureau figures tell us statistically 5.3 people die on our nation's roads every day.

During the 12 months ended March 2012 there were 1,301 road fatalities Australia-wide.

Although this is a 2.0% reduction from the 12-monthly period ending March 2011, this figure still needs to be lowered and we must strive to achieve zero fatalities on our national day of road safety awareness.

Take the interactive pledge on the Fatality Free Friday page and to help make this Friday, 25th May, fatality free.
