Koorda Backpackers Learn Aussie Road Rules

Posted on: Tuesday, 21 May 2019 at 12:00:00 AM

A sundowner to welcome 15 backpackers who will work on farms in the Shire of Koorda included some road safety flair, thanks to Road Safety Advisor Cliff Simpson.

The visitors, mainly from Estonia and Germany, discussed road safety issues and were provided with the Road Safety Commission's A Guide to Driving Safely in WA (German and English editions).

Other topics included driver fatigue, drink driving and seatbelt use, and of course driving on the left in Australia.
 
The backpackers were also presented with a gift pack by the community.
