Queenslanders urged to take the pledge for Fatality Free Friday

Suncorp Insurance partners with national event to curb growing road toll

To date in 2015, there have been 87 Queenslanders killed on our roads1.

Suncorp Insurance has once again joined forces with the Australian Road Safety Foundation to address the state’s rising road toll and to promote Fatality Free Friday – an event that aims to achieve zero road deaths throughout the country for just one day.

This year, Fatality Free Friday falls on 29 May, and Suncorp Insurance, together with their Road Safety Ambassador and V8 Supercar Champion, Craig Lowndes, is encouraging everyone to take the pledge for safer roads and ‘put a seatbelt around Queensland’.

Lowndes said “Every time I get behind the wheel of any car – whether it be for a race, or just dropping the kids off at school – I’m aware that I need to be 100% focused on safety,”

“I’ve taken the pledge for Fatality Free Friday this year, and I encourage all Queenslanders to do the same, because we must have safer Queensland Roads.”

Queenslanders are encouraged to show their support for Fatality Free Friday by visiting www.fatalityfreefriday.com and taking the pledge, or by visiting the official Fatality Free Friday event at Suncorp Stadium on Friday, 29 May from 7am.

Suncorp Insurance has been a partner of Fatality Free Friday in Queensland since its inception in 2007. In 2015, Suncorp Insurance is encouraging staff, customers and supporters of road safety to help spread the message of Fatality Free Friday by posting a photo of their road safety pledge to any social media account with the #seatbelt4qld.
