National Road Safety Week in Cranbrook

Posted on: Thursday, 11 May 2017 at 12:00:00 AM

The Shire of Cranbrook joined Great Southern Police and WALGA’s RoadWise by participating in National Road Safety Week 2017 at the weekly darts night at Cranbrook Sporting Club.

National Road Safety Week aims to raise awareness of road safety and prevent deaths and injuries on our roads. The campaign coincides with the Fourth United Nations Global Road Safety Week which runs from 8-14 May 2017.

Cranbrook residents signed a Safe Speed Promise (pictured below), pledging to;

  • Drive within the speed limit on all roads;
  • Be courteous to pedestrians, cyclists and all other road users; and
  • Display their I slow down in Cranbrooksticker on their vehicle to inform other of their commitment

In support of the campaign there will be large police presence on the roads throughout National Road Safety Week to remind road users to stick to the speed limit and target dangerous and illegal driving behaviour.

You can show your support for National Road Safety Week by making sure that you stick to the speed limit and adapt your speed for the weather, light, traffic and road conditions and encouraging family and friends to do the same.
