Injury Prevention Day - 21 August 2019

APIL's members are committed to campaigning for reform to improve the law for injured people so that, when the worst happens, people can exercise their right to seek justice, care and fair compensation. But we would all prefer for people not to be injured needlessly in the first place.

The third Wednesday in August (21 August 2019) is Injury Prevention Day, when APIL wants people to think about what they can do to help prevent harm.

This year the focus is on avoiding needless injuries by sharing your pearls of driving wisdom, which we are calling 'driving lessons'. We want to hear any simple safe driving tips or mottos that have stuck with you and helped you be a better and safer driver. Perhaps your dad once told you to "never accelerate into the unknown", or your grandma told you that "chance takers are accident makers", or your driving instructor advised you that "a fast drive could be your last drive". Share your lesson to help drivers prevent needless crashes and subsequent injuries.

You can share your messages on social media at @APIL on Twitter and on APIL's Back Off Facebook page here: www.facebook.com/APILBackOff.

We welcome and encourage others to get involved in Injury Prevention Day 2019 with their own messages and campaigns. We can support each other to avoid needless harm. Use the hashtag #IPDay19 and #DrivingLessons.
