Road Safety Round

Road Safety Round a Victorian Rugby initiative between the TAC and the Melbourne Rebels

The first TAC Road Safety Round in Victorian Rugby took place on August 5th 2023 for Round 14 of the Rugby Victoria Premiership, Premiership Reserves and Championship clubs to promote road safety within Victoria.

The Road Safety Round is a significant event aimed at raising awareness about road safety and honouring the lives lost on the roads in Victoria. This initiative, organised by the Melbourne Rebels in collaboration with the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), and Rugby Victoria, provides a platform for your club make a positive impact in their community by actively promoting road safety.

Taking place on Saturday, 22 June 2024, Road Safety Round will see Rugby Victoria clubs and members of the wider rugby community take to the field wearing a blue armband. These bands serve as a reminder that we all have a responsibility to drive safely and are in honour of every life lost on the road.

Everyone has a reason for wanting safer roads. We want to hear yours. Record your story, share it on your socials using #TACBandTogether. Let’s band together for safer roads and look out for one another on and off the field.

To play your role, collect an armband from your local rugby club, and remember, we all have someone to drive safely for.
