All we want for Christmas is you!

A garden of Christmas gifts has emerged in Adelaide’s city centre as South Australians embrace MAC’s All I Want For Christmas Is You road safety message.

Until Saturday 20 December, the north east area of Victoria Square will be MAC’s Christmas gift garden where you are encouraged to write the name of a loved one who you want to keep safe on the roads onto a ‘present’ that is then placed under the MAC Christmas trees.

By taking part in the Christmas gift garden, you can get behind MAC’s road safety message and tell family and friends how important they are.

Please remind them not to drink drive, to be patient on the road, ensure they have plenty of rest if they’re driving long distances, and stick to the speed limits. Read Christmas regional driving tips here and see our handy information on standard drinks.

MAC wishes you a safe and happy festive season.

The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) has proudly supported the South Australia Police (SAPOL) Road Safety Education programs for more than 10 years.

The support of the program has assisted to position MAC as the leader in road safety, and the organisation which makes the most difference to road safety amongst 16-39 year old South Australian males.

MAC’s funding allows for the resourcing of SAPOL personnel, and other associated costs, to deliver nearly 900 education sessions throughout metropolitan and regional South Australia.

The funding allows for approximately 60,000 people to partake in road safety education in their respective schools, community groups/clubs and businesses.

SAPOL’s road safety program objectives are to:

  1. Increase the knowledge and skills of all road users in road safety;
  2. Influence attitudes and change behaviours;
  3. Reduce the number and severity of road crashes;
  4. Create awareness of the ‘Fatal Five’;
    • Speeding;
    • Drink and Drug Driving;
    • Distractions;
    • Seatbelt;
    • Dangerous Road Users;
  5. Reinforce positive attitudes towards road behaviour.

SAPOL acknowledges the main causes of crashes and highlights these within its road safety education presentations. These are stated as priorities for both SAPOL and MAC.
