City of Wanneroo residents are urged to stay safe on the roads during the coming festive season.
The City is joining forces with the Western Australian Local Government Association’s RoadWise program in support of the Road Ribbon for Road Safety campaign during the Christmas period.
Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City’s ultimate goal was a road transport system that supported safe and accident free journeys.
“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility and we all have a role to play by doing the right thing,” she said.
“This includes obeying road rules, signage, speed limits and driving to the specific conditions.
“I urge all drivers to do everything they can to stay safe, including NO drink driving, NO speeding and NEVER using a mobile phone while at the wheel.
“It is also important to make sure that everyone in the car wears their seatbelt regardless of how short the journey may be.”
The Road Ribbon for Road Safety campaign strives towards zero fatalities in line with the state wide road safety strategy.
The campaign runs from Sunday 20 November until Friday 6 January and ribbons are available for free from the Wanneroo Civic Centre and City libraries.
More information about the campaign can be found at www.roadwise.asn.au or by contacting the City’s transport and traffic team on 9405 5072.
