National Road Safety Week

National Road Safety Week runs from 16 to 23 May.

The initiative highlights the impact of road trauma and looks at ways we can reduce it. The event has grown rapidly over the years across the country, with State, Territory and Local Governments embracing the colour yellow for the week, by lighting up some of Australia’s most iconic buildings, bridges and structures in both cities and regional areas, the introduction of road safety policies, provision of grants, road safety launches and campaigns, as well as community and other road safety awareness events. Keep an eye on the Bathurst and Blayney Road Safety Facebook page for information.

Free child restraint fitting

As part of National Road Safety Week, we will be hosting a free child restraint fitting day on Wednesday 19 May from 11:00 to 2:00 at Bathurst Toyota on Corporation Avenue. You can get your child restraints checked and fitted by an authorised fitter and learn some tips to help select the correct seat for your child. More information at
