The Carnarvon RoadWise Committee is bringing in some recycled reinforcement to help increase awareness of road safety in the Gascoyne.
Working with the local TAFE, the Committee has built a cow made out of recycled material, named Secondhand Sally. She will be soon assisting the Committee to raise awareness of some of the hazards that can be found on Gascoyne roads and ways to avoid them.
Livestock, wildlife, road trains, caravans, trucks and light vehicles all share Gascoyne roads - each bringing its own road safety risks. Committee members have been working with stakeholders to increase awareness of how some of these risks may be avoided through activities such as delivering presentations to local caravan parks, having information stalls at events, promoting messages through Facebook, displaying the Committee crash car trailer and manning Driver Reviver operations.
These activities support other work undertaken by Committee members including walkability audits, community consultation and the use of the courtesy speed display signs to monitor local travel speed.
Secondhand Sally will provide an extra engagement tool when the Committee is out and about in the community. She has also been raising awareness among local TAFE students involved with her construction.
