Transcript of Share the Road video
VO: Victoria is home to some beautiful roads.
VO: But with more than 5 million people on them every day, things can get a little busy.
VO: This is causing many of us to feel stressed or angry while travelling.
VO: This mood is contagious. It impacts the people around us, so it's about time we changed it.
VO: Share the Road is a long-term initiative to build respect on our roads, and get Victorians from A to B as safely as possible.
VO: It starts with something simple.
VO: Understanding that everyone has the right to travel safely and happily.
VO: And that sometimes it's the little things that matter when you're sharing the road - like courtesy.
VO: After all, everyone makes mistakes and the only behaviour we can change is our own.
VO: There are many people that share our roads; from motorcyclists, bike riders and pedestrians to truck drivers and motorists.
VO: We can all Share the Road by:
VO: Being mindful of other road users.
VO: Avoiding behaviour that makes others feel unsafe.
VO: Promoting mutual respect.
VO: Saying thank you...
VO: Unplugging and making eye contact...
VO: And by simply smiling and giving a wave.
VO: Relax and enjoy your time on our roads, because like we said: they're beautiful.
VO: Whether it's the Great Ocean Road or the Black Spur's bends.
VO: The wide-open Hume, or breezy Beach road.
