THIS Sunday, the Mandurah bridge will glow yellow like other national landmarks to create awareness of National Safety Week and encourage the community to Drive So Others Survive.

The bridge will glow yellow from 5.45pm.

The Yellow Ribbon National Safety Week (April 30 until May 6 this year) began five years ago.

The tying of yellow ribbons to vehicles or lighting icons, buildings or structures in yellow symbolises an active commitment to Drive So Others Survive and honours those who have been injured or killed in crashes.

Perth has been chosen as the location for the safety week launch with WA landmarks to glow yellow in remembrance of the lives lost on Australian roads.

The City of Mandurah’s RoadWise Advisory Group continues to drive home road safety messages in partnership with police, emergency services personnel and other groups demonstrating their commitment to road safety.
