Road Safety Week

 

Living Streets Aotearoa is excited to be part of Road Safety week. There are many distractions when using a road. Pedestrians, drivers and cyclists need to forget the ipod, cellphone and concentrate on the road. If we look out for each other we can ensure everyone gets to where they are going safely. I See You is better than I.C.U. Lets decrease the toll of trauma and death on our roads and make them Living Streets.
