DRIVER SAFETY TIPS

Sexual assault impacts millions of people in Australia. 1 in 5 women and 1 in 20 men. While the responsibility for sexual assault lies solely with the perpetrator, we can all look out for each other’s safety and help stop violence before it happens. Drivers have a unique role in ensuring that everyone is treated safely and respectfully.
