Lighting up the Sydney Harbour Bridge to remember lost lives

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a wash with yellow to kick off  Yellow Ribbon National Road Safety Week.

The NSW Government is joining the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) initiative, to encourage us to remember more than 1,200 lives lost on the nation’s roads each year.

Yellow Ribbon National Road Safety Week is an initiative of the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group led by Peter Frazer following the tragic loss of his daughter Sarah in a crash in February 2012.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge turned yellow at 6.25pm and will remain lit up in yellow until Sunday, 6 May.

 Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight Melinda Pavey spoke to Kayley Harris and said while lighting up the bridge in yellow is a bold statement to start the week in NSW, she hopes it will also encourage everyone to think about their driving behaviour.
