Transport for NSW Media Release – Amy Gillett Foundation to run Safety program

Transport for NSW have sent a Media Release today to advise how they are going to tackle the sudden increase in cyclist fatalities in NSW this year.

In 2012 NSW had a total of 12 cyclists killed on the roads. So far, in the first 7 weeks of 2013, we have seen 4 cyclists lose their lives. Transport for NSW have approached the Amy Gillett Foundation to help them run their road safety campaign.

From the media release:

Ms Prendergast said the Centre for Road Safety has approached the Amy Gillett Foundation, a member of the NSW Road Safety Council, to help raise awareness among cyclists about their safety on the road.

The Amy Gillett Foundation works to reduce death and injury of bike riders in memory of an elite Australian cyclist killed while training in Germany in 2005.

“We have a growing number of cyclists in our community, so it is important road users look out for and respect each other on the road,” Ms Prendergast said.
