Country roads have some of the highest road trauma statistics - which drivers have been reminded of through bright yellow bows.
Even the iconic HMAS submarine in Holbrook, and Lockhart's metal sculptures have been turned yellow for National Road Safety Week.
Greater Hume and Lockhart Shire councils have run a competition prompting residents to decorate their front gate or letterbox in yellow, with the most creative entries receiving vouchers.
Greater Hume's road safety officer Kim Schultz said the theme was "drive so others survive".
"This year with National Road Safety Week, it's probably the first year we've really got behind it and promoted it at a local government level," she said.
It's a really important messageRoad safety officer Kim Schultz
"Doing face-to-face presentations was limited; this was an opportunity for people to still get involved. It's a really important message."
National Road Safety Week is an annual initiative of the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group.
Last Sunday, there was a "pause to remember" the 1200 people who died on our roads last year.

Today, the second-last day of the week, focuses on the vulnerability of cyclists and motorcyclists.
It is a cause close to the hearts of Henty residents Jenny and Bruce Whitlock, who cycle regularly.
"It's a really good cause and it's a good way to remind people of road safety and bike riders," Mrs Whitlock said.
