Stay Alert * Stay Alive
To assist with the campaign we have designed several stickers to spread the word on this important road safety education issue.
Stickers can be purchased online and postage is free

Whoops, looks like the GovInc ‘forgot’ to register the main domain for the spanking new number plate slogan.
So we have it here, along with www.camerascutcrashes.com.au and www.camerassavelives.com.au
Stay Alert Stay Alive is a great slogan for the road safety message we are trying to communicate here but we are also showing the failure and bordom most road users have for tired old safety messages too.
Surely to complete the message, they should have obtained the domain names for the PR campaign they are trying to thrust in front of us every day on the road.
I wonder how much was spent to come up with this ground breaking slogan.
How many hospital beds were closed to pay for the bright designer sparks.
How much of the $50/ fee every motor bike registration pays for ‘road awareness of riders’ went to choose the regular blue on the plate?.
Ted’s come out with a fine statement to justify his decision but no mention of slashing TAFE education, let alone promoting ANY driver education courses.
More to come but whilst we wait for the plates to actually be on cars (sometime early next year) we can fill out yet another survey for this Gov.
Perhaps after one of these, we will have a few clear policy ideas showup and they can claim them as their own.
Hopefully we can keep the roadtoll down (and not just have to quietly remove random figures from the published toll).
STAY ALERT * STAY ALIVE
Looks like we’ve made the media (thanks @MeganLevy @theage)
Victoria’s new number plate slogan urges people to “stay alert, stay alive”.
But it appears the state government may have been caught napping, after a quick-thinking critic snapped up the domain name to the new slogan just hours after it was unveiled by Premier Ted Baillieu yesterday.
And the mystery man is not afraid to participate in a little government bashing.
Those typing www.stayalertstayalive.com.au into their browser are redirected to a website titled “Cameras Cut Crashes Bah! Humbug!“.
In concludes: “Hopefully we can keep the roadtoll down (and not just have to quietly remove random figures from the published toll).”
The anonymous man phoned radio station 3AW‘s rumour file today to promote the website.
Asked if he knew who had set up the website, he said: “Hang on I’ll just have a look in the mirror.”
The new number plate slogan is part of a State Government bid to promote road safety.
Previous messages have included “Victoria – on the move” during the Kennett era, “Victoria – garden state” and “Victoria – the place to be”.
Yesterday, Premier Ted Baillieu said the new slogan built on the state’s reputation as a world leader in the field of road safety.
“We want to make sure that we keep road safety front and centre for every Victorian,” Mr Baillieu said today.
He told the regional sitting of Parliament in Ballarat that the message would act as a “constant reminder” to motorists to drive safely and remain focused.
Mr Baillieu said the new slogan came following public feedback and advice from the state’s road safety agencies.
The new plates will appear on motor vehicles once the existing stock of plates is used up, which VicRoads expects will be early next year.
They will be in the same blue and white colour scheme as the current plates.

Moderated comments will be open on this thread. Please add your best slogans that should replace this one with more honest ideas. Please keep them nice.
Edit- for those commenting, VicGov does use .com.au for several accounts.
Type www.vicroads.com.au and follow where it goes.
And as a first we may later offer the site domain name www.stayalertstayalive.com.au for sale (VicGov included)
Any money will go to assist road trauma victims and maybe even fund grade separations in important locations. Especially at Clayton Rd, Clayton where Ambos regularly have to wait only metres away* from ‘Code1 arrival’ at Monash Medical Centre.
