Five Star Cars on Show at the Topdrill St Barbara’s Parade

Posted on: Monday, 23 December 2019 at 12:00:00 AM

Members of the Kalgoorlie-Boulder RoadWise Committee participated in the annual Christmas Mining and Community Parade in Kalgoorlie this month.

This year in the Topdrill St Barbara’s Parade, the RoadWise Committee decorated two 5 star vehicles, promoting the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) 5 star ratings and the 'Safer Cars Save Lives' message.

Two new 5 star ANCAP rated vehicles from the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder fleet were used in the parade - a 2019 Nissan Leaf and 2019 Mazda BT-50 utility vehicle. Showing that work vehicles can be 5 star safety rated was an important part of the display.

Committee members walked in the parade, spreading the Christmas spirit and chatting with the crowd about safe vehicles and safe practices on our roads.

In the true spirit of the RoadWise road safety network working together, the City of Mandurah RoadWise Committee was able to share their safe vehicles signage and banners with the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder RoadWise Committee for this event.
