M8 the Call Can W8 and #AvonLocalsDrivingChange Projects Win Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion Awards 2017

Congratulations to Local Governments in the South West region on their local road safety project M8 the Call Can W8 winning the Injury Matters Outstanding Achievement by a Local Government in Injury Prevention or Safety Promotion Award.

This local road safety campaign addresses the dangers of using mobile phones whilst driving and continues to expand each year.

The Northam RoadWise Committee is also celebrating, with their 
 #AvonLocalsDrivingChange project winning the Injury Matters Outstanding Achievement in Regional or Remote Injury Prevention or Safety Promotion Award.

This initiative involves local identities 'voicing' road safety messages for the community, through their places of work, on Facebook and in local press through a series of 'photo-voices'.

Well done also to the City of Mandurah, receiving a Highly Commended, and the Shire of Plantagenet for their project nominations.
