'Vehicle Has Been Reported' Sticker Initiative Celebrated by Morawa RoadWise

Posted on: Monday, 21 August 2017 at 12:00:00 AM

One such idea originated with Morawa RoadWise chair John Pulbrook and fellow passengers approximately 20 years ago when they invented the “Vehicle Has Been Reported” sticker. 

The story of the stickers started after a drive through Coomadale, after sighting a crashed vehicle with no visible signs of a driver or passengers. 

John and his companions searched the surrounding area for close to an hour for anyone that may have been ejected from the vehicle, all the time hoping not to find anyone.  Fortunately there was nobody, and the idea for the “Vehicle Has Been Reported” sticker was created. 

The stickers are widely used by Local Governments and the WA Police once a vehicle has been reported, often saving motorists from the uncertain and unpleasant task of stopping to assist or having to report the vehicle again. 

Over the past 20 years, thousands of stickers have been distributed across WA.
