'Consider Our Kids' is a program that invites Local Governments and the community to participate in raising the awareness of drivers to reduce their speed in built up areas.
Speeding drivers have been identified as a main contributing factor in road related deaths and serious injury in Western Australia. The Road Safety Council of Western Australia is committed to reducing the speed of vehicles on our roads and continues to conduct regular community education campaigns targeting speed.
The ‘Please Slow Down, Consider Our Kids’ stickers are designed to be placed on the side of wheelie bins. The stickers act as a deterrent for speeding by providing a visual reminder to drivers to reduce their speed. As they are only displayed on bin collection days, it reduces the chance that drivers will become accustomed to them.
Since the program began, more than 50 Local Governments have successfully implemented the initiative by placing over 225,000 stickers on wheelie bins across Western Australia.
There are two options available for those wanting to participate in this initiative:
- Local Governments – Please contact your closest Road Safety Advisor to find out more about the ‘Please Slow Down, Consider Our Kids’ stickers and associated safe speed activities in your community.
- Community Member – Community members will need to contact their Local Government to find out if they participate in the program.
