Road Safety Week. Save Lives, #Speakup

AMI Wellington

This week marks Road Safety Week, where we take the chance to highlight ways to keep each other safe on New Zealand’s roads. This year’s theme is Save Lives, #Speakup, and the week coincides with the United Nations Global Road Safety Week. So what does road safety look like to you? #SpeakUp and post a reply below!

This year we’ve lost too many people on our roads. No death on the road is acceptable. Everyone is entitled to safe and healthy mobility. Here at AMI, we’re committed to making our communities safer for everyone. We’ve helped to fund advanced warning signs for rural intersections – so drivers get an early head’s up to slow down – as well as supporting youth training in over 80 schools through Road Safety Education (RSE) , a nationwide organisation helping young people change the way they think about road safety and lay the foundation for safe road use throughout their lives. There has been huge success through RSE’s RYDA programme and in some areas with their Good2GO programme, which is run for students at schools such as Tāmaki College in Auckland.

Road Safety Week encourages us all to take a pledge – what can we as individuals do to improve road safety? Will you avoid all mobile phone use or take more breaks during long road trips? Save Lives, #SpeakUp below and tell us what your pledge is.
Check out the Road Safety Week website for more helpful tips.

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Are you OK?

The Team from Wellington District Police

Your emotional and mental wellbeing is important. It is normal to feel stressed or lonely when self-isolating, but there are some things you can do to feel better.

Even if you are not sick you may be feeling anxious about COVID-19. This is normal.

Reach out to your family and whānau, friends and workmates. Sharing how we feel and offering support to others is important.

We want to remind you that if you or someone you know is struggling right now, there is free help available.

See below a list of helplines throughout New Zealand ?

Kia Kaha Aotearoa.

Hey neighbours, I am planing to make some hot cross buns, but unfortunately found that I almost run out of yeast. Where to buy now?
