Description

On 1 January 2003 it became illegal in the Northern Territory to ride in the back of all utilities, even those fitted with a roll-cage. The campaign was targeted at remote Aboriginal communities and included radio announcements in English, Murrinh Patha and Djambarrpuyngu; as well as posters, bumper stickers and visits to communities. Initially the campaign was targeted at Top End communities but in time would be extended into Central Australia.
