"I slow down..." campaign

Posted on: Tuesday, 1 September 2015 at 12:00:00 AM

To remind drivers to slow down, the Town of East Fremantle Neighbourhood Watch Committee is distributing free “I slow down in East Fremantle” bumper stickers.

Vulnerable road users made up around 39% of those killed or seriously injured on local roads in the Town of East Fremantle from 2003-2012.Reducing the speed at which people travel along these roads provides a safer environment for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

Mayor Jim O’Neill is leading by example to encourage drivers to slow down as they drive on the Town's streets.
